Aku Aku: The Journey from Central Asia to Easter Island
3:00pm | 2 Danks Street, Sydney
AKU AKU: The Journey from Central Asia to Easter Island
29 November – 17 December 2016
Opening Saturday 3 December, 3 - 5 pm
Aku Aku is the name of the book by Norwegian explorer Thor Heyerdal about his archaeological discoveries at Easter Island. My mother, who was a passionate book collector, gave the Russian translation of this book to me at the age of 7. Over the years, our substantial library took many shapes as it moved with us from city to city, from country to country, from continent to continent, from Central Asia to Australia.
Only a small number of books survived our complicated life journey. Aku Aku was one of them.
Last year, I finally managed to visit Easter Island, the place that captivated me as a child. I took on the trip Aku Aku, and that book’s story, which is so close to my family’s story, has inspired this exhibition.
Using collage as her mode of exploration, RAE BOLOTIN fulfils a childhood dream of visiting Easter Island after reading Aku Aku as a child. Playing with depth and form, the works intertwine memory and narrative, as the gestural paper extends out of the frame to draw the viewer into BOLOTIN’s visual journey. With Aku Aku as your companion, follow BOLOTIN’s gaze and flowing forms through the memory-laden landscapes with the mystical moai.
RAE BOLOTIN was born in Tashkent, Uzbekistan (former USSR) in 1955 but her family moved from Belarus. Growing up, they shared living quarters with a native Uzbek family and this experience allowed her to closely observe different customs and political views. BOLOTIN came to Australia in 1979. This interaction between two different cultures continues to inform her work.
RAE BOLOTIN has exhibited in China and extensively in Australia, including Sculpture by the Sea, University of Western Sydney Sculpture Award (twice), Eden Gardens Sydney, Sculpture in the City (Martin Place) 2002 and Sculpture in the Vines (Lower Hunter Valley) 2003 & 2004. In 2006 BOLOTIN won the Willoughby Art Prize and in 2007 she was a finalist in the Helen Lempriere National Sculpture Award. BOLOTIN’S work is held in many public and private collections including Macquarie University, Sydney. Rae is also the founding Artistic Director of BigCi studio and artist residency program.
• Irish Moss Closing Feast •
3:00pm | 11/131-145 Glebe Point Rd., Sydney
Please join us to sip wine and break bread for the closing of 'Irish Moss'.
Irish Moss’ exhibits the latest body of work by Canberra based artist Julia Thwaites. This multimedia show drafts a customary investigation into ritual ergonomics, specifically some aspects of the christian liturgy and the use of 'sacred' objects for the religious experience. Thwaites re-signifies these objects in a form of spiritual transubstantiation, ad hoc to the current state of religious politicisation. As she herself states:
“Irish Moss is about existential frailty, and the primality of its counterweight, faith. In the exhibition, existential anxiety takes the form of the young man, whose experience of faith and belief is defined by the visual, spatial and textural conventions of the church. Through a series of mixed media works, these conventions are repurposed to create a dialogue about the relationship between contemporary male identity and the institution of religion, in all its ritual and tradition, be it profound and restorative, or convoluted and warped.
It’s the beginning of a story I'm telling, about man and his struggle to find faith of some kind - faith in life, faith in the future - and the alternative that waits if he fails.”
Closing Event: 3rd December 3-5pm

Time & Space – Exhibition Launch
1:00pm | 60 Atchison Street, Sydney
Opening Event: 3rd December 1pm - 3pm
Frederic Courbet, John Dobson, Jon Johannsen, Kurt Sorensen
Image: John Dobson (cropped)
As time progresses, the natural and man-made spaces surrounding us develop and change. From the ancient to the modern, the stories of change are innumerable.
This exhibition sees the four artists explore how time has affected the spaces around them in very distinct and different ways.
Frederic Courbet is a photographer and filmmaker with over fifteen years international experience in commercial photography and photojournalism. Courbet in December 2015, joined acclaimed African photographer and author Nigel Pavitt on a month-long journey in Ethiopia, one that became a photographer's pilgrimage as they drove off-road, caught boats, hiked and hauled themselves plus equipment up goatskin ropes to reach the most remote holy sites and meet their custodians. Courbet explores the Ethiopian rock hewn churches, cut out of mountain-sides in 6AD in the heartland of ancient orthodox Christianity - best known for the sites of Lalibela, Gondar, Axum and Gheralta.
John Dobson takes images that could be anywhere in any suburb of any big city or small town in Australia. They reflect how he perceives suburbia after growing up in suburban Melbourne to living overseas in cities for 10 years of his life. When returning to the suburbs, the feeling of familiarity is overwhelmed by estrangement. They are coloured by his ambivalence. ‘I am literally on the outside looking in on these metaphorical castles. There is often a fence blocking my view, but it may as well be a moat. There is even a hint of Munch’s paranoia. As I point my camera, I feel the windows staring back at me.’
Jon Johannsen as an architect and urban designer has had an enduring interest in both urban and rural environments, and enjoyed finding and photographing subjects with quirky attributes, graphic qualities or showing a process of aging or change. Sites undergoing transition or decay such as the industrial relics of Glen Davis in the Capertee Valley west of the Blue Mountains, the now demolished railway goods buildings at Alexandria and the former Walter Burley Griffin designed incinerator at Pyrmont, all have a sense of desolation overlaid with a raw spatial abstract.
Kurt Sorensen is focused on the inherent fears and anxieties that have historically permeated through European interactions with the Australian landscape. The work is created through researching historical colonial texts such as newspapers, state archives or journals and looking for specific instances of reported misadventure in the Australian landscape.

STABLE performance & talks
3:00pm | 497 Parramatta Road, Leichhardt, Sydney
On the final afternoon of our STABLE exhibition there will be a live performance by Danica Knezevic, finissage drinks and artist talks by Kath Fries, Fiona Kemp, Danica Knezevic and Nuha Saad.
STABLE performance & talks: 3-5pm Sunday 4 December.
The exhibition is open Friday to Sunday 11am-5pm.
Articulate Project Space: 497 Parramatta Rd, Leichhardt.
Above image: Danica Knezevic, 'Bound by longing', 2015-2016, performance, still from video 7:55 minutes
STABLE connotes many things including mental, physical, environmental, elemental stability and instability; a shelter for horses; or a bringing together - as in a stable of artists. These ideas are explored in STABLE, a group exhibition by Kath Fries, Fiona Kemp, Danica Knezevic and Nuha Saad who all share mutual interests in exploring both the conceptual and material qualities of their practices, working with site-responsive, experimental and embodied processes. Together the four artists generate new interpretative connections to critique the themes of stability and stables within Articulate Project Space. Their scope is broad, Nuha Saad works with abstracted ornamental objects, Kath Fries with ephemeral forms, Danica Knezevic with durational performance, and Fiona Kemp works conceptually within her multidisciplinary practice. Materiality is a central concern in STABLE, as these artists playfully and thoughtfully push the limits of their practices.

‘Whizzing Tinge’ by Amanda Airs
Open Hours: 11am-5pm, Friday-Sunday, 19 November-4 December
In her work Amanda Airs uses her personal experience of being in the landscape to create large disorientating abstract installations. Using repetition and hi-key tones she is able to create strong optical effects in particular perception of motion and spatial ambiguity. When applied to a large area Amanda uses the disorienting nature of the work to increase spatial awareness and to convey a heightened experience of being in the landscape.
The work ‘Whizzing Tinge’ portrays the landscape, not as a representational depiction but as an examination of the interplay of light and colour of moving elements in the landscape. This work takes inspiration from a small but beautiful event in the landscape, when autumn leaves are lifted into the air by a gust of wind. As the leaves flicker back and forth, a multitude of colours are revealed on either side of the leaves. It is hoped that the moving elements in this work and the use of wind will trigger a memory or a sensation of being in the landscape and experiencing one of these tiny events.

Hi all! Caoife and Doug have an art showing!!
(Basically we loved walking around in New Zealand and made art about it.)
"We, Caoife Power and Douglas Schofield are ‘Mountain Mates’, and have devoted our time together by walking up the highest peaks, studying the strange shapes and labouring over tough terrain. We acknowledge the lands authority, giving us the directions to move.
We have taken this time together to create a mountain of colour. This could be a metaphor for a journey, a political statement, or a need to reach great personal heights. Complicated and definitive, unique and ambitious, we hope our work shares a way of navigating strange environments.
Our work aims to evoke a story, expressive and colourful, ready to be shared. We hope it will be welcomed by those who have felt, however vaguely, the fascinations of the land."
Please join us on the opening night on the 7th of December from 6-8pm.
A big thanks to Arc @ UNSW Art & Design for the grant that helped make this show possible.
‘FOR THE DEVIL DOWN SOUTH’ – New works by Brett Piva
6:00pm | Goodspace Gallery
In May 2016, Brett Piva drove from Newcastle New South Wales, to Taranna Tasmania over 4 weeks exploring and documenting the natural and cultural environment along the east Tasmanian coastline. Basing himself in Taranna, each day was spent driving, hiking and drawing and painting natural shapes and colours found on each journey.
This being Brett's first Sydney solo exhibition, he is presenting a series of new abstract works which merge natural forms with lettering discovered around the Tasmanian landscape. All works use traditional gold leaf application on glass with enamels hand painted in reverse to reveal an elegant design on the face of each piece.
Brett Piva is the Founder, Creative Director and Curator for both Pocket Design - Newcastle creative studio, and MAKEit MADEit - Newcastle Creative Conference. Brett specialises in bespoke, hand-crafted lettering, signage, murals and has exhibited works in cities across Australia and The United States. A curious mix of ultra-modern and old-school, Brett has studied and worked in the traditional trade of signwriting throughout his career, but has also designed with agencies in London and Sydney with a portfolio including work for heavy hitters like Coca Cola, Cadbury, Virgin Mobile, Disney, Kodak and Subaru.
Over recent years Brett has travelled throughout Australia and the world to conduct research and collaborate with everyone from traditional signwriters in little country towns, to world renowned artists. Brett uses traditional reverse glass painting techniques with gold leaf and enamels while also experimenting with timber sculptural works. His work is formed by developing natural patterns and lines that are found whilst adventuring in the Australian bush and within forestries of the East Australian coastline of New South Wales and Tasmania.

Yiorgo Yiannopoulos: Buff Pink
6:00pm | 747 Darling Street, Rozelle
Join us on Wednesday 7 December from 6-8pm for a glass of champagne to celebrate the opening of Yiorgo Yiannopoulos' solo exhibition 'Buff Pink'.
Yiorgo was the 2015 recipient of the Artereal Gallery Mentorship Award given each year to one graduating Honours student from Sydney College of the Arts. His solo exhibition comes at the conclusion of a one year mentorship with the Artereal Gallery team...
Yiannopoulos' latest body of work 'Buff Pink' presents an exploration of the sexual geography of men’s public bathrooms. "Excretions lie upon each surface of the men’s public bathroom. Blatant puddles of urine mark the insides of toilet bowls, seats and bathroom floors; recklessly abandoned, they are relics of the careless territorialism of men.
Pools of piss were collected and tested against an array of urinalysis strips, the colours of which morph to visualise the bridge between health and disease. Those from whom this piss was flung remain enigmas. Their test results culminate in a representation of the masses who pass through and share these spaces with those who utilise the architecture to have sex. Tiled against one-another, similarities and variance appear ever clear and also disappear.
(Yiorgo Yiannopoulos, Artist Statement)
Exhibition runs until 22 December 2016
Claude Jones: Bully
6:00pm | 747 Darling Street, Rozelle
Join us on Wednesday 7 December from 6-8pm for a glass of champagne to celebrate the opening of Claude Jones latest solo exhibition.
Claude Jones latest body of work entitled 'Bully', is a direct reference to our treatment of animals in laboratories, entertainment, and intensive farming.
"My exhibition, Bully, will feature works that question the human bullying of other animals yet the word “Bully” is really a euphemism in the context of animal exploitation. “Bully” suggests the sort of bullying that occurs on school grounds, which indeed can be seriously damaging to some children, but this is a far cry from the kind of “damage” that animals incur when they are trapped, caged, experimented on etc.
The vast majority of children’s book illustrations incorporating animals are infused with the rosy myth that animals are always our friends and we would certainly never hurt them. Our instinctive childhood love of animals is endorsed in such books, movies, stories, toys and domestic pets yet whilst our warm affection for animals is fostered, our taste for animal products is simultaneously cultivated.
Referencing children’s book illustrations, I deliberately employ the use of colourful and decorative elements, yet the subject matter suggests the sinister reality of the animal-human narratives depicted rather than the rose-tinted happy world of most children’s books.”
Artist Statement, 2016
Exhibition runs until 22 December 2016

Morten Lassen Exhibition Opening & Book Launch
6:00pm | 66 King St, Sydney
Join artist Morten Lassen and the NandaHobbs Contemporary team for the opening of "Metamorphosis", the launch of Lassen's new book "WORKS" and Christmas Drinks on Thursday 8 December. View catalogue: http://nandahobbs.com/exhibition/metamorphosis
Lassen has for a decade, investigated an invisible world that we struggle to comprehend let alone visualise—creating paintings of the indefinable moment where words, pictures and music traverse the space between our computers and mobile devices. It is information transference on a scale and speed that is increasing exponentially every year.
In "Metamorphosis", Lassen draws us back towards the natural world in an evocative yet beautiful dialogue, reminding us that it is impossible to live in a virtual world if the real world does not exist. The exhibition runs until 22 December.
Searching Shadows • Steven Cybulka
6:00pm | 11/131-145 Glebe Point Rd., Sydney
We are thrilled to announce our last 2016 show at Interlude Gallery! Thanks for your steady and pontifical support! Believe us when we tell you that our dark souls cry with what the common people know as "joy". But leaving aside the blathering, we greatly encourange all of you to say goodbye to the vulgar year (gregorian calendar) by joining us and Steven Cybulka Visual Art at his solo show titled 'Searching Shadows'.
Opening Night: Thursday 8th December 6-8pm
Closing Event: Saturday 17th December 3-5pm
Searching Shadows is a visual investigation of shifting perception through changes of form, light and shadow in space.
The focus of this visual arts research is on examining how changes in and manipulations of material abstract forms, and their placement within a space, can engage and alter our perception and awareness. The work explores the interplay between elements of transparency and opacity, light and shadow, the solid form and the ethereal, and the resulting tension or paradox between these opposing states.
Steven Cybulka’s practice encompasses sculpture and installation ranging from small to large scale. Interested in manipulating space in order to elicit a heightened viewer response, he draws inspiration from Carl Jung’s texts on shadow psychology.
The omnipresent darkness of this work points towards what Jung describes as the shadow archetype. According to Jung the shadow archetype are aspects of ourselves that the ego represses; what is repressed can be good or bad, but the shadow represents ideas challenging how we want to be perceived. Hence, Jung’s shadow commonly refers to our inner turmoils.
Cybulka is an Adelaide based artist and a graduate from Arts & Applied design at the University of Australia. He was recently part of the 2016 Primavera's show at MCA.

4:00pm | Goodspace Gallery

One night only from 4PM, launching the book along with an exhibition of photographs.
Large-scale prints really are the most impressive way to enjoy Nic's work (outside of the book, of course) so get down to his Sydney book launch exhibitions for a drink and a chance to pick up a signed copy of this gorgeous local photography publication.

KNULP Fundraiser Auction 2016 / Sunday 11th December from 2pm
2:00pm | 15 Fowler St, Camperdown, Sydney
Please join us for the annual KNULP Fundraiser Auction
SUNDAY DECEMBER 11th
Open for viewing from 2pm
Live auction commences at 4pm
Featuring works from an array of KNULP associates including:
David M Thomas
KNULP is an independent artist run gallery in Camperdown, Sydney. We offer a program that supports mid-career artists both with and without representation, established artists looking for different exhibiting contexts, emerging artists, and curatorial projects.
KNULP does not run on a commercial model, nor does it receive any funding from governmental bodies. As a result, our existence is subject to the success of our annual fundraiser, where individual artists kindly gift one work for auction. In the past, this has provided enough capital to sustain a yearly exhibition program, with additional funds supplied by the directors.
Your support would play a key role in keeping KNULP's doors open.

Brad Teodoruk: Pushin’ Up The Daisies – Exhibition Opening
10:00am | 112 Glebe Point Road, Glebe
The Shop Gallery is pleased to present Pushin' Up The Daisies, Sydney artist Brad Teodoruk's debut solo exhibition. Featuring a selection of new work, this exhibition demonstrates the artist's commitment to story telling through paintings, prints and ceramics.
Teodoruk explores the depths of figuration in a diligent painting process. A process in which the artist often paints over an artwork several times, leaving traces of the previous painting creeping into the next. Through this technique, Teodoruk is able to create an array of expressive and abstract work.
Throughout many of his narratives, the artist portrays characters dealing with hardship, suffering and death. Teodoruk has carefully constructed a juxtaposition for these themes and ideas through the use colour and composition.
"My work is heavily influenced by traditional folk art as well as naive art. I am interested in bold colour choices and flat imagery, abstraction and expressionism."
Brad Teodoruk is currently studying a Bachelor of Fine Art at The National Art School. His artwork has recently been selected as a finalist for the 2016 Blacktown City Art Prize. In August 2016, Teodoruk organized and curated a group benefit show for the charity beyondblue in which he raised $4000.

- Collective Unconscious -
A new art exhibition by Sydney-based artists Joel Cunningham, Sam Shennan & Julio "Hules" Castellano.
Together as a collective they will be displaying a brand new body of works each in their own specific styles that incorporate elements of fine art, sculpture, street art, typography & illustration. Each of the artists have been creating for many years in Australia and overseas and have participated in both large and local exhibitions and art prizes.
We invite you to come along to the opening night on Thursday 15 December at M2 gallery in Surry Hills from 6pm to see the exclusive art and have some drinks by our awesome sponsors Dynamic Wines & Young Henrys.
The exhibition will then continue for 1 week and be open from 6pm nights and 11am on the weekend.
- Sam Shennan -
Sam Shennan is a local emerging artist spent 5 months exploring North America in an attempt to uncover the nature of it's unique native cultural tribalism.
What he found was the universal similarity between all cultures.
Over a year has gone into crafting these intricate artworks that bring the surreality of psychedelics to life. He is always a passive observer of the process, and so is surprised by the imagined reality that springs off the page when the work is completed.
- Joel Cunningham -
Joel's art practice channels his need for risk taking behaviours, allowing himself the freedom to act on impulse and follow his instincts. His main discipline is sculpture, however his work is experimental and he enjoys working with a variety of media including painting and drawing. His recent work explores various mind states, focusing on the impact a person's thoughts have on their emotional well being. He is concerned with the way these mind states trigger habits and compulsions which overpower logic or rationality.
Joel lives and works in Sydney, Australia. He has completed his studies at Sydney College of the Arts in Rozelle where he attained a Bachelor of Visual Arts with First Class Honours. Prior to that he received a Diploma of Fine Arts at Meadowbank Tafe in Sydney's north west. Joel exhibits his work throughout Australia and Internationally
- Julio Castellano -
All this exclusive series was painted whilst he was in Argentina, South America. Julio's artwork takes a bird's eye view of natural, social, political & cultural issues. In his work, he deconstructs pop art, street art, mythology, nature and urban landscapes that are part of our culture and world as humans. By engaging diverse subjects his work reproduces familiar visual signs, arranging them into new conceptually layered pieces that leave questions unanswered engaging the viewer. Often times these themes are combined into works that feature an urban influence of style and textures, juxtaposed with whimsical objects, tribal patterns and often embellished with illustrations. The colours establish a dream-like surreal quality, whilst the illustration formally unifies the disparate objects in each art work. The typography he provides clues to content and interpretation.
He uses a variety of materials and processes in each project such as spray paint, charcoal, acrylics, oil and pastels.The subject matter of each body of work determines the materials and the forms of the final piece.
