The Biennale of Sydney's unofficial fringe event starts this week, so jump on the SafARI to see some of Australia’s most talented unknown and upcoming artists’ works.
The 16 exhibiting contemporary artists span sound, installation, performance, painting, photography, new media and sculpture, and will show their works at three unconventional Sydney venues. Head to the Rocks Pop-Up’s abandoned George Street buildings, ALASKA Projects’ Kings Cross car park turned gallery, and BUS Projects’ roaming exhibition space to see some of the city’s brightest young things.
Three to see:
Julian Day will be display unwanted keyboards and play simple and ordered synthesised pieces. His sonic journey is intended to demonstrate musical simplicity and the messy responses that come from hearing order.
Dara Gill (pictured) focuses on everyday human anxiety. By bringing a sound to life in an object, Gill explores how the emotion motivates people to achieve something.
Using stop-animation and 776 individually oil-painted portraits, Julia Holden celebrates the dedicated practice and meditation of painting. Her piece, 'The Philosopher', focuses on handmade objects and their place in an increasingly digital world.
