Kerameikou 32









Curated by Melody Ellis and Nella Themelios




ReMap3: an international contemporary art platform, Athens, Greece




12 July – 30 October 2011




Kerameikou 32 is a nomadic public art project exploring the relations between


art and globalised public space.




As urban spaces throughout the world become increasingly privatised for a


multitude of commercial uses, this project considers how mobile arts practices


can encourage experimentation and contestation within the public


realm. Utilising a truck fitted out as a gallery and performance space,


Kerameikou 32 imagines a new kind of roving‘institution’; a model for


rethinking the overlap of politics and art.


This project builds on the success of BUS Projects’ recent public art


intervention Critical Mobility and forms part of the 2011 program of


ReMap3 in Athens, Greece. The Kerameikou 32 truck will be stationed


at 32 Kerameikou Street for the duration of the opening week of ReMap3


(12 – 19 September 2011) and will feature work by Australian artists


Kay Abude, Ros Bandt, Michael Fowler, Agatha Gothe-Snape and 




Dylan Martorell.


The fit-out for the truck has been designed in collaboration with Athens-based


architects Beth Hughes, João Prates Ruivoand coordinated by


Vassilis Oikonomopoulos. At the conclusion of opening week, the


architectural fit-out will remain as a free-standing installation.


Kerameikou 32 has been curated by Melody Ellis and Nella Themelios


on behalf of BUS Projects. BUS Projects supports and promotes the


experimental fields of performance, sound art and spatial practice. In


addition to its core exhibition program, BUS Projects is committed to


operating outside of traditional gallery contexts, developing exhibitions,


 events and performances off-site and within the public realm.

The Devil Had a Daughter - MUMA



the Devil had a Daughter Monash University Museum of Art


Caulfield Campus4 August – 1 October 2011


Curator: Kirrily Hammond


The Devil had a Daughter reflects an enduring fascination with allegorical,


theatrical and macabre imagery apparent throughout the history of printmaking.


Drawing upon various forms of print-media such as architectural installations,


 the artist’s book, performative works, found printed matter, as well as longer


standing print traditions, this exhibition aims to open up the definition of


 ‘printmaking’ towards an expanded understanding of its role and form in


 contemporary art. The Devil had a Daughter features the work of Jason Greig,


Stuart Ringholt, Sally Smart, Dylan Martorell, Pat Brassington, Mike Parr, Tony



Garifalakis, Petr Herel and David Noonan, and is timed to coincide with


IMPACT 7, the International Multidisciplinary Printmaking Conference


to be held at Monash University from 27-30 September 2011.

rock solid - pieces of eight


Pieces of Eight Gallery presents


ROCK SOLID


A group exhibition curated by Meredith 

Turnbull


March 22 - May 7, 2011




Participating artists 


(click on the names to read a profile on each artist)
 


Rock Solid brings together a diverse group of 11 established visual artists. While the relationship of sculpture and installation to the body is often experienced as tacitly submerged or surrounded, this project asks the artists to make works that are at a scale that can be worn on the body. In their broader practices each artist displays an inherent sensitivity towards materials and a conceptual engagement with the art-making process. They investigate interests and ideas as far ranging as the exploration of the history of sites and objects; rare and endangered species and musique concrete, geometry, and spatialised sonics. Rock Solid is a multifarious and playful exploration of material fictions and imagined truths in the relationships between objects, sculpture and the body.  


Opening Night Tuesday March 22nd, 6 - 8pmTo be opened by Kate Rhodes, Creative Director of the 2011 State of Design Festival and Manager of the RMIT Design Hub. RSVP by March 19 to marketing@piecesofeight.com.au

DYLAN MARTORELL
04.02.11 – 05.03.11
Gertrude Contemporary is pleased to present a new solo project by Melbourne-based cross-disciplinary artist Dylan Martorell.
Martorell’s practice is primarily concerned with the human trail evident in our refuse. To create his multifarious sound installations Martorell up-cycles this detritus, giving new life and function to discarded materials.
Martorell’s installations often take the form of electro-acoustic instruments featuring found and handcrafted elements that extend into magical assemblages of sound, costume and other apparatus and exist well beyond the confines of the gallery. His work is driven by an ongoing investigation of the concept of musical diasporas and the ways that music and instruments migrate across the globe, adapting and evolving to suit different cultural and climatic conditions.
For his solo exhibition at Gertrude Contemporary he will further explore these ideas, creating the third phase of a project that began during his 2009 South Project residency in Jogjakarta at Roommate. During his residency Martorell began toying with the concept of a nomadic performance space, creating a large sound environment that hosted a series of performances  – revealing the contextual and atmospheric nature of sound. Created from tarps, bamboo, market bags and trinkets this mobile instrument/installation morphed as part of the Roda Roda sound system into a series of bikes that further extended his idea for a sound environment that was not anchored to one location. The resulting series of bikes and costumes had sound emitting devices installed within them that responded to atmospheric sounds of the cityscape where they were exhibited.
For the third phase of this exhibition to be held at Gertrude Contemporary, Martorell takes this idea to the water, creating a watercraft from recycled materials and suspending this vast, sound-making boat from the ceiling of the Front Gallery.
Alongside Martorell’s Front Gallery exhibition he will also take over Studio 12 where he will be curating a series of revolving sound projects in collaboration with local musicians and artists. 
Dylan Martorell has been exhibiting and performing for over ten years. Central to his multidisciplinary practice is an intense interest in the full spectrum of Music and sound sources, ranging from field recordings to ritualised performances. His work also draws on the rhythms and structures of the natural world, real and imagined histories, musical diaspora as well as the use of time, sound and light on sensory perceptions to create synaesthestic combinations of improvised colour, pattern, sound and line.
Martorell has exhibited and performed nationally and internationally. Solo exhibitions include Musique Povera at Heide Museum of Modern Art, 2010; Splintered Guilders, Lamington Drive, Melbourne, 2009; Stolon Tonals, Black and Blue, Sydney, 2009; Umbel Ballits, Craft Victoria, Melbourne, 2008; Hinterdact I and II, Über Gallery, Melbourne, 2008; and Panter Cluster Rimbone, Utopian Slumps, Melbourne, 2007.
