Appease the Sun / Beata Geyer, 2007
Thursday 2 Aug to Saturday 11 Aug, 1 – 6pm
At Factory 49, 49 Shepherd St, Marrickville 2204
The Manufacture of Sky Light will be composed of yellow-pigment drawings on high table-like structures that are intended to fabricate the manufacture of sky light through their location on the factory floor and their resemblance to the light visible through the roof above. It is a continuation of an earlier work, Appease the Sun, which, though now dismantled, is documented in the attached image with visitor, Beata Geyer. I hope to be able to document The Manufacture of Sky Light with its visitors before it too needs to be dismantled.

Brisbane-based artists Myriam Raymond and Jacina Leong will present their work in the collaborative project Words: Open Close. The exhibition surveys the ambiguous nature of language and the ability for truth to be revealed or remain obscured behind its reading.
You are invited to attend the opening of the exhibition on Tuesday night 31 July from 6 to 8pm
Pia Larsen, Untitled, 2007.
Drypoint/relief printmedia, 1150 x 725mm.
The work in the exhibition, ‘Sine Waves,’ consists of wearable objects in metal, shaped prints in colour, and corporeal ‘LP’s’ ‘playing’ on customized turntables. Apertures and swirling lines appear within the metal and paper forms, reminiscent of bodies and the organs within them. The old technology of the LP record has morphed into parts of the body such as the female breast and hair whorl, each spinning new grooves.

Visit the Sofitel Melbourne and discover Experimenta at the Sofitel, the first exhibition of interactive artworks and video installations that is open 24 hours, 7 days a week.
Showcasing works by Australian and international artists the exhibition provides a tasty, bite-sized sample of cutting edge art and creative technology. The artworks are audience favourites from Experimenta’s national and international touring programs over the past few years.
A couch that growls when it is sat upon and purrs when touched, a motion sensor activated video work that is startled by a visitor’s approach are two of the works on display in the foyer of the hotel. Video works by well-known international artists Hiraki Sawa (Japan) and June Bum Park (Korea) explore the theme of illusions and transform reality of daily life into fantastic moments of wonder.
The exhibition is free and open to the public. Experience the weird and wonderful creations for yourself.
