Whispers, also known as 'Chinese whispers', or 'Telephone' in the US is an internationally popular children's game, where the players form a line and the first person in the line whispers a message in the ear of the next person in the line, and so on, until the last player is reached, who announces the message to the entire group. Part of the enjoyment is when the original message is compared with the final version, it can become garbled along the way. Errors typically accumulate in the retellings, so the statement differs significantly from that of the first, usually with amusing or humorous effect.

Whispers (based on the childhood game), the art exhibition at Gate 6 Gallery, Gate 6, Cardinia St (Junction of Gamble and Cardinia Streets), Akoonah Park, Berwick, Opening Friday 8 December 2017 from 6-8pm (gallery open through 9 & 10 Dec - Sat & Sun 11am-5pm - free entry) is a unique experiment in re-interpretation. This yearlong project has culminated in this exciting exhibition, where images are passed from artist to artist. Each SECAN artist has 2 weeks in which to create their version of the preceding artist's picture, using only memory and any sketches they made during their brief look at the work, before passing their work along to the next artist.

It's all being done in secrecy until the grand unveiling at the exhibition. Exciting isn't it? Can't wait to see the results! Hosted by SECAN INC (South Eastern Contemporary Art Network), this exhibition also celebrates the official launch of the newly refurbished Gate 6 Gallery, so come join in the fun and discover the exciting birth of these interpretations, and perhaps misinterpretations that is the brainchild of Arpad.
