Following her successful exhibition from The Locker of Phineas Baker at The Mill Creative Hub, during August, local artist, Delana Carbone is presenting a very different exhibition, SUPERFICTION. This art exhibition combines text and paintings, in a way that can only be described as playfully diverse and varied. It incorporates performance, public art, design, writing, and sculpture connecting the space between creative writing and visual art.
SUPERFICTION will be launched at Blue-Bird Coffee Lounge, this Friday night, 9 September, at 6.00 pm.
You can get a taste of the 'fun' that is involved with SUPERFICTION, as you view it by torchlight only, as Delana asks us to question our assumptions of truth and authenticity of artifacts and images by cultivating alternative interpretations. Her hope is that we leave the gallery having been forced to think for ourselves, combating the corn feed media standards and marketing opiates.
The artist, Delana is a graduate of the Visual Arts program at UniSA and the Creative Writing degree at Flinders University. She has held a critically acclaimed solo exhibition from The Locker of Phineas Baker at The Mill Creative Hub, composed sea shanties and held a feature role in the South Australian Web Series Wastelander Panda.
Delana Carbone - SUPERFICTION: A collection of retrospective super fictions
Mind you, Delana hasn't always been so goal focused, as she had some chequered years at high school and was expelled from two high schools before completing year 11, because of her 'beyond disciplinary behaviour.' Recently Delana moved to Norway to pursue her artistic goals and this exhibition at Blue-bird Coffee Lounge is to raise funds for her artistic future overseas.
In Delana's own words, SUPERFICTION is embroidered, bejewelled and ornate. It is the symbiotic evolution of a fictional narrative united with visual artwork, to sustain each other completely and to appear as an altered and alternate truth.
SUPERFICTION is a story that sneaks off the page onto your lap, onto your walls, into the historical rolls. It could well be the juicy lie created to cause you to ask, "What does truth taste like? We may well question the facts we are ingesting and not just a believable preference?
Why? You can get a taste of the 'fun' that is involved with SUPERFICTION, as you view it by torchlight only, as Delana asks us to question our assumptions of truth and authenticity of artifacts and images by cultivating alternative interpretations.
