Kathryn Bird, please show Ross

Looks fabulous!

thankyou Paul Andrew xsal

It was sometime in the latter part of the 1980s. I was at a conference in Adelaide talking about the motivations and difficulties of putting out Eyeline magazine. Peter Anderson was not there but would no doubt be able to tell us now the year and the important concepts discussed - he was like that. The most extraordinary walking and talking archive of contemporary Australian art with a specific interest in the regional and disregarded but in an informed national and international framework. I had talked about the financial cycle of magazine production and how the Government funding requirements of having to produce multiple editions before you could apply was a recipe for guaranteeing either failure or ongoing financial difficulties. But I had also talked about the context and reason for finding ways to survive and print the next issue. No this was not an exercise in providing an outlet for art criticism or academic publishing the way it was for some other publications - particularly for those attached to institutions. It was an exercise of resistance. Of refusing to be disappeared. I remember reading a short passage from John Berger on Pinochet’s Chile ... “Normally silence means a lack of sound. Here silence is active and has been turned, once again systematically, into an instrument, this time for torturing the heart. Occasionally carcasses are washed up on the beaches and identified as belonging to the list of the missing.” Peter and Paul you are both dear to my heart and I admire the effort of refusing to be disappeared that you have undertaken. I have not read Peter’s PHD work. I would love to but I feel as though I know so much of it already in so many fragments of our conversations over some 40 years - give or take. I remember a very playful intelligent and provocative friend and I’m sure his PHD would have been that. John Berger ‘Drawn at that moment’ “Any image - like the image read from the retina - records an appearance which will disappear. The faculty of sight developed as an active response to continually changing contingencies. The more developed, the more complex the set of appearances it could construct from events. ( An event In itself has no appearances.) Recognition is an essential part of this construction. And recognition depends on the phenomenon of reappearance sometimes occurring in the ceaseless flux of disappearance.” John Berger ‘On visibility’ “In a dead universe nothing is visible. Visibility is a form of growth.”

Um, are there three or four masked artists? It looks like three...

There were many masked performers and disruptors that evening, the hand made masks, like the 35mm Pentax K 1000 were shared around between artists and on artists alike [painted papier mache made by Jane largely, much like the earlier Little Roma Street event in 1986 for The Demolition Show opening] ...we are currently working on a selection of the That Space shared camera memory posts this year....with as much fragmentary info as is readily musterable now...part of the challenges of these types of archival art initiatives there is no one stop definitive and comprehensive collection, provenance, data or contextual info to simply access and draw from, no formal archive exists....its a glacially slow social jigsaw puzzle....thanks to ongoing and persistent love, labour, enthusiasm, collaboration and participation the impossible is made possible...

my participation was limited to only occasional contrivances. entrusting such efforts to the vagaries of Australia Post always seemed a bit risky. i recall traveling personally by bicycle and sneaking about to slip some missive into a letterbox shrouded by lush sub-tropical foliage. Scots Law defines missive as - a document in the form of a letter exchanged by the parties to a contract - and so they were, except that the contract was unstated and its terms subject to continuous negotiation.

Neil Degney mail art post man.

Love this! I was unaware of the movement but naturally did it with some artist friends I made in Amsterdam when I was there in 1989. We sent each other surprises through the post during the early 90’s. I guess the internet killed the mail art star 😏

Cindy Ranger Neil Degney used to organise mail art events in Brisbane. Great thing to be involved in.

About 1990 I lamented the fact that I never received any postcards from friends, so after buying a shoebox worth of cards from the 1900's-1950.s from the Alumni Book Sale I looked through the White pages and found a heap of names. I organised my card sending by finding people with cake surnames - like Madeira, Sponge and Sultana...and sent them all cake recipes according to their name. I then found people with cardinal point surnames - North, East, West and East...and sent them eccentric travelogues. I also found quite a number of people with fish surnames - like Cod, Salmon, Trout and Snapper...and sent them fish recipes. All up I remember writing and sending about 40 postcards. I wouldn't even think about doing something like that today.

My shot at this was to send 40 letters to the art teacher where I was doing a residency. 20 of them had the single word 'Many', the other twenty 'Times.'Completely freaked her and the school.I think maybe there was a phone call to the police. My mail art got a D minus no doubt. That was in the early 90s as well.

actually nick number 1 loved reading crime novels in the bathtub...it was his favourite past time particularly on weekend mornings...i often disturbed him on such weekends as it was my time off from the ima and despite making him grumpy we enjoyed art and life banter over a cuppa while he was wearing a very tattered bathrobe..either sitting at the kitchen table always messy or in the lounge room where the floor was covered chaotically with records interview tapes a multitude of literary criticism books and screeds of lecture or theory articles that he was in various stages of completing....highly organised chaos...i miss him very much...the other nick or nick number 2

Managed to do something approaching Art in the queen street mall back in the 80s only to be told by one shopper that if they had a gun they would have shot me and another that complained to Warrana that my company looked like a satanic ritual. Should have stayed indoors.

They shoot artists, don't they?

I Dream in RGB

Embrace (2021) If Johnston Street, Fitzroy is within your 15k limit, my art billboard - Embrace - will up until the 3 Oct. It is a digital still collage in rotation with the regular promotions. Sponsored by JCDecaux.
:
I created the vibrant billboard artwork to articulate an understanding of something people in isolation and lockdown lack but frequently desire - a comforting embrace from family and friends. With restrictions preventing us from this type of touch, we are missing the tactile cue that represents a particular intimacy. Embrace acknowledges this absence.
Saturated colours and synchronous digital elements were included to instil a sense of wonder and alacritous fun.
