Lisa Watson's work captures the industrial areas, derelict sites, back streets, laneways and street art, uncovering the unexpected and bringing to our attention to the unseen. The exhibition Banyule - A Different Perspective is a series of work which Lisa Watson has produced over the last 18 months.
During this period she explored the suburbs in the Banyule area looking beyond the greenbelt areas, parklands, golf courses and the landscapes which the Heidelberg artists depicted. Instead uncovering spaces which are filled with derelict buildings, urban artwork and multifaceted places.
The exhibition is a mix of video, installation, photography and sound scapes by sound designer Jess Lovell. So make sure you grab a set of headphones and view the works on show by connecting to soundcloud to enhance the exhibition experience.
Make time to pop down and check out the exhibition, look out for the vintage caravan named Nellie, provided by the Banyule council.
Relax on the deck chairs or interact with installations, the coloured tealights glowing internally as you carefully open the boxes, street scapes and locations are revealed questioning your perspective.
