(Re) Presenting – An Apocalyptic Pin-Up – A Soylent Spot Slide Night + DIY Zine [by artist Erika Scott and a cast of Brisbane ARI artist colleagues] – May 2020 ( a collective memory work in progress now )

“I’d just like to thank everyone here from the bottom of my Soylent heart. “

 

 

 

 

I’d just like to thank everyone here from the bottom of my Soylent heart. To those who turned up, said yes, or have participated here in any capacity. I’m indebted to all the artists pictured, their generosity and enthusiasm to hang around, talk, share knowledge and plan along with me, and especially to those who dipped their toes in even though we hadn’t previously met.

 

I just hope that there’s been something in it for everyone, as I’ve learned a hell of a lot. I’m also thankful to a group of photographers who expertly stalked my events and gave their perspectives, whose talents made this shiny apocalyptic pinup possible (thank you: Marc Pricop, Louis Lim, Julia Scott-Green, Charlie Hillhouse and Cian Sanders).

 

This post doesn’t come at the end of anything…I’m still scheming, planning, making and living here. The post for me does comes at an interesting juncture in time, as events and situations unfold at a point very close to the year the film ‘Soylent Green’ was set (2022!) I don’t heavily invest or make predictions about the future so much. It’s just interesting to speculate on moments in time and how certain systems arrive at a tipping point.

 

I feel like The Soylent Spot operates on the ‘edge’ of a lot of things: funding, time, rooftops, relationships, situations, expectations etc, but at the same time I feel like there’s a lot that’s grounding, sustainable and age-old here too.

 

And, to all the contributing artists pictured, Thank you too!!:
