A SHINY NEW EXHIBITION INCLUDING PUBLIC ART, VIDEO AND PHOTOGRAPHY
Shae Rooke and Jess Dubblu‘s studios at Yonder Art Space are plagued by seagulls, and each spring Alfred Hitchcock’s ‘The Birds’ is re-enacted on the rooftop. Their weapons of choice include all and any shiny objects that they can get their hands on. For One Night in Footscray Festival, Shae and Jess bring you their best line of defence – a floating, glittering disco ball made from inflated goon bags and a series of related video and photographic works.
‘Temporary Territory’ is a comedic look at celebration, memory, aesthetics and humans’ futile attempts to fight against nature. We invite you to gather with us in trashy celebration under our goon bag disco ball as we ward away the birds.
Showing at Bar Josephine 295 Barkly Street Footscray, Friday 24th November 2017.
