Five Miles from the Sea

Level 17 Artspace invites you to the opening and exhibition of:

Five Miles from the Sea
Curator: Geoff Tolchard

Artists: George Alamidis, Terri Brooks, Caz Guiney, Jodi Heffernan, Kari Henrikse, Greg Neville, Kirsten Perry, Karenne Rees, Adriane Strampp, Maria Thompson, Geoff Tolchard, Peter Wegner

This exhibition is titled Five Miles from the Sea as it investigates the impact of the incursion of non-indigenous peoples – and the marks they have inflicted – upon Australian soil. In deploying their chosen mediums the artists are asked to visually interpret a specific reference point they identify as being five miles from the sea. This will be accompanied by a Google Earth image so viewers can place the artist’s chosen areas into a geographic context.

Who lives five miles from the sea, and how does the impact of settlement appear in the eyes of the twelve participating artists? With some artists beginning their lives in different parts of the globe – and since chosen to make Australia their home – it will be interesting to observe whether their perspectives differ to those who were born and bred here: will it reveal any notions about being a ‘multicultural’ country, or a society that is considered as being Twenty-First Century?

Hope we see you there!

In the past 10 or so years, since the digital revolution really began in earnest, a number of web-based platforms have been developed by companies and parties the globe over allowing creative individuals from all backgrounds the ability to set up their own online spaces whereby they can showcase and discuss their work.

It is only really in the past year or so though that some of these platforms have really established themselves as cutting edge - extremely easy to use, cheap (if not free) to set up, open to endless variances of customisation, technically sound and clean and seamless in their execution. There are however undoubtedly still some fairly average products out there...."
