Outlet Act XII: new works on paper, Victorian Arts Centre,Melbourne, Australia
Medium Reduction linocut
Summary This exhibition also went to UTS Gallery, Sydney and Artspace, Adelaide. It featured the recent work of twelve invited Australian artists (four pieces each) with a particular affinity with paper and continued the biennial series launched in 1995 as the Australian Paper Art Awards. Act XII celebrated diversity of practice in paper-based art and investigated notions of enactment and staging in the performing arts. Curator Lesley Harding; 'Dorothy Porter's libretto for the opera The Ghost Wife informs Mitch Lang's Serpents in My Garden, linocuts from Jazmina Cininas The Girlie Werewolf Project reflect on identity and disguise'.' Works covered a wide range of methods, including printmaking, drawing, painting, collage, artists' books, sculpture and computer generated art. Other artists represented: Raymond Arnold, Gunter Christmann, Lesley Duxbury, Gracia Haby and Louise Jennison, Deborah Paauwe, George Popperwell, Bernhard Sachs and Hossein Valamanesh. Cininas shows female werewolf narratives which depict the chief protagonist as super-, rather than sub-human. In the wake of climate change and globalisation, the hybrid figure of the female werewolf offers an accessible visual model for multiple viewpoints and developing an empathetic engagement with the non-human world.
