EXHIBITION: True Blue at Beyond Skate

EXHIBITION: True Blue at Beyond Skate published on No Comments on EXHIBITION: True Blue at Beyond Skate

In the lead up to Australia Day/Invasion Day, we’re meditating on Australian identity, nationalism and colonialism in this exhibition at Beyond Skate.  I’ll have two paintings, Ides and Cinis, in the exhibition, on colonial grief, guilt, horror and assimilated cultural identity.  You can watch their progress via my instagram 📷.

Spinning post-punk, new wave, dark wave, punk, goth and industrial records at WYM #2 this Saturday as DJ Black Phillip.

 

I’ll have the zine stall out and my favourites Sprawl are playing too so. You should probably come down.

Many thanks to Northbridge Piazza, Emiko Watanabe and Fresh Prints for having Xero back this year even though I put pictures of a dog vagina and a bong on the giant screen and read a poem about heroin to a crowd of families last year.

Emiko, you’re an angel.  We’ve worked through Xero (and bongs and dog vaginas) to resist the kitschification and gentrification of art in this city where you work with it – and bless you, when you create something beautiful and kitsch and family friendly like Fresh Prints, you still invite us to take part.  I really can’t say thanks enough.  Sure, I think what we do – resistance – is important, but no one can function alone and this is not a war.  Thank you so much for always inviting us along as a weirdo presence in your lovely events.  Maybe if the other people in our lives growing up had embraced our weirdness as much as you do, we wouldn’t be half as hurt as we are today.

They even put our art in the cute little video!

 

 

 

 

 

And of course, thanks to Hayden Dalziel and Caz Bank for helping out with the stall, you know I couldn’t do it without you guys, and Clara Seigla and Ben Yaxley for keeping us laughing, and everyone who came down to see us and buy our stuff as always.

As the indomitable Ackley Ack returns to full time study this year, I’ve taken the reigns of the Xero zine distro for the immediate future.  This year we’re expanding our stock, bringing music and accessories to the streets of Perth as well as importing work from interstate artists.

I’ll be joined by collagist Caz Stafford and others to sell our art this year.
