Feathers Exhibition

The Feathers exhibition will display the works of 23 young Australian artists in a novel and quite innovative way.

Drawing upon the proverb Birds of a feather flock together the artists' works will be enmeshed in a giant nest of chicken wire and other recycled materials that winds itself around the gallery, symbolising the communality of the participants and drawing visitors further into the nest.

The media used by each artist is their own choice - from photography to jewellery, to illustration and sculpture and paintings, and no doubt with others thrown in to spice the nest.

There will be a mix of known high profile artists together with those just emerging from their shells (yolk!). To complement the exhibition an accompanying catalogue has been created by emerging designer Dan Purvis that includes artist biographies of everyone involved in the show with portraits taken by photographer Genevive Brandenburg and accompanying creative essays by Esther Nimmo and Fruszi Kinez.

Works from the following artists will be showcased: Vera Ada, Sebastian Petrovski, Steph Fuller, Genevive Brabdenburg, Elle DS, Gee Greenslade, Wes Todd, Reb Rowe, Cameron Brideoak, Dan Purvis, Caitlin Millard, Beth Millard, Artist Neto, Sam Evans, Imee Luz, Fruszi Kinez, Grace Mitchell, Andrew Humphries, Katie Lee, Alyshia Eming, Esther Nimmo, Ashley Playfair, Ryan Wakelin. The Exhibition is curated by Kat Coppock

Unlike many of the other activities around town at the moment, this is not a government/ACC sponsored event. Rather it is crowd sourced, where contributors get special privileges or memento gifts in exchange for their financial support.

Feathers is being held at the rather mysterious Format Gallery. Clicking on the link will probably only confuse rather than illuminate you, as the website has not been updated for some time, and seems aimed more at the people who already know what Format is.

So why not just check out the exhibition anyway? I'm sure free ranging @ Format will be more fun than being cooped up at home or getting your feathers ruffled at work.

Format @ Peel Street

And after you have pecked through the paintings and other pieces on display and have eggs-ited the Eggsibition, perhaps you should flock off and explore the neighbouring laneway at Gilbert Place. There is plenty to graze on there.

Or perhaps you would rather spread your wings and check out some other street art around the city?
