Let's Play: The art of our time

Let's Play: The art of our time

Bunjil Place Gallery
Patrick Northeast Drive, Narre Warren
Curated by Rodney James

What is influencing art today? Like, right now. What is it saying about what is happening in your own backyard, your own city or the world? What makes us who we are and how are today’s artists reflecting on life as we know it? Now, this might all sound a bit existential, but it’s not all serious.

Curated by independent curator, Rodney James, Let’s Play: The art of our time, is an exhibition featuring a range of works that convey how toys, role-play, technology and the imagination have become a central component of the art of our time. Bringing together contemporary works from public and private collections across Australia, Let’s Play will encompass painting, sculpture and photography through to multi-media and digital based installations.

Featuring Brook Andrew, Terry Batt, Polly Borland (UK/USA), Tina Douglas, Emily Floyd, Shaun Gladwell (AUS/UK), Claire Healy and Sean Cordeiro, Chayni Henry, Troy Innocent, Jess Johnson (NZ/USA), Jeff Koons (USA), Maria Kontis, Fiona McMonagle, Jan Nelson, Trent Parke, Patricia Piccinini, Robert Pulie, Nick Selenitsch, Tim Silver, Fleur Summers and Miwa Yanagi (Japan).

Let's Play: The art of our time
14 December 2017 - 25 February 2018

Douglas/Mikayama, Slithers/Chen, Liebscher/Scott

MIUC

25 July 9 - 11PM

This week we bring you an audio/visual delight with three duos each taking something visual based and re-writing the instruction manual.

First up is Tina Douglas and Yuka Mikayama. Tina wields conductive paint, felt, objects and sound devices like a wizard to take your painting preconceptions and knock them out of the ballpark. Yuka, practitioner of the weird and wonderful adds her voice, objects and performative movement to please your ears and your eyes.

Joining them on the line up is Tyson Slithers and Emily Chen. Emily skilfully operates a/many scanner/s while Tyson tends to the electronic processing front. Together they traverse the newest (and best) frontier for office appliances.

Also with us is Miranda Liebscher and Jessie Scott. Both are practicing video and sound artists and tonight unite to twinge your nostalgia nerve with good old fashioned VHS manipulations. 

• Jessie Scott (VHS & more) & Miranda Liebscher (Electronics & more)
• Tyson Slithers (Computer) & Emily Chen (Scanners)
• Tina Douglas (Electronics, Objects, Conductive Paint) & Yuka Mikayama (Voice, objects)

ALTERNATING CURRENT SPACE, 248 High Street, Windsor, Victoria

Exhibition runs 20 July - 12 August 2017

Repurposed materials operate two, three and sound dimensionally in Node. Painted and drawn elements shift to become controllers, joysticks, buttons. Painting, embroidery, natural surfaces trigger digital events jarring the viewer's relationship with traditional materials and displacing the viewer's expectations.

Node is an experiment which attempts to build on my sound performance and visual practice which have mainly remained separate.

Exhibition launch Saturday 13 May, 2-4pm. RSVP townhallgallery@boroondara.vic.gov.au

Exhibition runs 9 May - 4 June 4 2017

Douglas produces large paintings that explore grids in a meditation on structure and decay. They are complex and layered, and their abstracted quality allows for free interpretation by the viewer. Their scale also creates a physical impact in the space, enveloping the viewer and drawing them into a tension between confident support and unravelling uncertainty.

to Apr 1

signalbox

Five Walls is pleased to present Tina Douglas' exhibition, ‘signalbox’.

Douglas' series of paintings act as a testing ground for emergent relationships between three-dimensional sculptural structures and two-dimensional mark making.

Creating physical disturbances on the flat plane of her paintings, Douglas investigates methods of breaking up the rigid spatial constraint of the flat canvas by working with removable modules, demarcated areas and non-objective assemblages. Douglas likens the geometric assemblages in her paintings to small engines, creating chaos within the structural painted grid that has become a central focus of her recent work. By navigating the painted grid with clusters of sculptural elements, Douglas lets chaos erupt in the form of an arbitrary visual rhythm.

“Douglas occupies, quite literally, a space in-between. Neither figurative nor abstract she eschews traditional three-dimensional configurations or flat, non-objective space. In its place Douglas offers a skilful (and often playful) interweaving of line, form and colour that changes dramatically from one canvas to the next.”

PKE-Tina Douglas-Hi Vis play AESO

At last, Paul Kidney brings the Experience to Aeso Studio, flanked by Tina Douglas & Hi Vis! Doors at 7.30 for an 8pm start. $5.

Friday knockoff is never safe with Hi Vis, a two piece industrial noise band from Melbourne. Disenchanted by the current nanny-state of over regulated bureaucracy, Hi Vis have reacted by creating a soundtrack to the new hi-vis wearing working class and the OH&S culture that pervades many modern work environments.
Wearing Hi-vis disguises they will take you on a journey through the history of industrialisation to it's inevitable downfall.
They are the sound of the modern work place, they are the noise in your head.

Tina Douglas will be bringing us DIY digital grit coding experiments. Improvised space noise with conductive paint, electronics & laptop.

Local cosmic groove-sliders, Paul Kidney Experience are the vibrating pot of gold at the end of a sugar-coated, plaster-cast musical rainbow. They make a beautiful noise which melts like a clock-face and splashes listeners with the thickest liquid sound, generated by a cocktail of musicians who are often purple, orange, green, violet, and invisible. Like flowers blooming underground on a different planet. Have you had the PK Experience? It's never too late to know the answer and with Aeso Studio providing the the right place, this could well be your time!

Melbourne Drone Orchestra. Supported by Galereh Pour & Adam Simmons | Sacred Order of the Magnitude

Memo Music Hall, 88 Acland St, St Kilda VIC 31822.30 - 4pm December 17 2016

The Melbourne Drone Orchestra returns in December to push the limits of the electric guitar and subsume audiences with a blanket of frequencies. For the first time, the MDO will be joined by two of Australia’s best and most intense drummers from within the world of extreme metal and improvised experimental music.

Matt ‘Skitz’ Sanders made his mark over twenty five years ago with iconic metal band Damaged, inspiring bands around the world to this day with his trademark mechanical precision and uncompromisingly violent approach to the drums. In recent years, he has performed with Gravetemple, featuring Stephen O’Malley, Oren Ambarchi and Attila Csihar of Sunn O))), and some of Australia’s best current extreme metal acts.

Brian O’Dwyer will be squaring off against him with an arsenal of skills drawn from his eclectic performance background. Working tirelessly for Melbourne musicians with his imprint Bleeemo music, Brian has participated in everything from grindcore to world music Having worked with extended playing previously, Brian’s approach to drumming infuses jazz-infused dexterity with the warp-drive intensity of grindcore.

Do not miss this one off opportunity to witness these two respected drummers spar in the ring of decibels that is the Melbourne Drone Orchestra!

The Melbourne Drone Orchestra is a unique assemblage of musicians who aim to create a sonic experience unlike anything else. Influenced by Fripp, Sunn 0))) and Earth’s pioneering use of the guitar, past performances have seen up to eighteen guitarists create a sonic monoliths.

All participants abide by three conditions; all guitars are tuned to DADGAD; only six string guitars (no bass guitars!); and no shredding.

Supported by Galereh Pour& Adam Simmons | Sacred Order of the Magnitude

Sacred Order of the Magnitude featuring Matt Refund, Shane Van Den Akker, Tina Douglas, Nik Kennedy, Vijay Thillaimuthu, Michelle Reeves.

Tina Douglas strips back the language of painting to reveal the underlying tension between intuitive mark- making, expansive fields and the self-imposed rule of the grid.

…Douglas occupies, quite literally, a space in-between. Neither figurative nor abstract she eschews traditional three-dimensional configurations or flat, non-objective space. In its place Douglas offers a skilful (and often playful) interweaving of line, form and colour that changes dramatically from one canvas to the next. She turns the rules of art upside down. Masking tape, essential to illuminating the had of the artist in hard edge painting now helps to produce subtle texture, bleeds and runs. Unstable reflections are introduced, along with free-form molecular shapes, pulsating rhythms and the suggestion of day and night. Although these aspects have a basis in the observable world they are more felt than seen, something there, but not quite.

Rodney James, Holding Pattern (exhibit. Cat.) March 2016


Lately, I have been using the grid as a tool for sectioning the picture into a series of fields. I have also been using a large long narrow format to reinforce this grid structure and further direct the picture plane.

The relationship or tension created between intuitive and the imposed rule of a large grid field interests me in both my visual and performative practice. This project will be integral to expanding this process of investigation.

Tina Douglas strips back the language of painting to reveal the underlying tension between intuitive mark-making, expansive fields and the self-imposed rule of the grid.


In her first solo exhibition at fortyfivedownstairs, Douglas presents eight new canvases, seven large rectangular and one square work on linen. Collectively, these largely monochromatic works refine her practice as a tightrope walker, perched precariously between the imagined and the real, structured and unrestrained, and rational and emotive.


Douglas occupies, quite literally, a space in-between. Neither figurative nor abstract she eschews traditional three-dimensional configurations or flat, non-objective space. In its place Douglas offers a skilful (and often playful) interweaving of line, form and colour that changes dramatically from one canvas to the next. She turns the rules of art upside down. Masking tape, essential to eliminating the hand of the artist in hard edge painting now helps to produce subtle textures, bleeds and runs. Unstable reflections are introduced, along with free-form molecular shapes, pulsating rhythms and the suggestion of day and night. Although these aspects have a basis in the observable world they are more felt than seen, something there, but not quite.

Rodney James, March 2016

holding pattern will be an exhibition of large paintings which will coincide with an exhibition of works on paper at my studio.

• Sister feat. Marco Cher-Gibard (Sampler) & Ben Speth (Guitar) 

• GNAUMGN feat. A Demon Sheen (Guitar, Kaos Pads) & David Prescott-Steed (Guitar, Kaos Pads 

• Tina Douglas (Electronics) 

This edition of MIUC is steeped in deeply variegated voltaic potentialities, with five sonoversal conduits conjuring dynamic masses of improvised euphoria for your experiential expansion and to rouse your auditory cortex with mellifluous frequential overload. Sister is the collaborative nom de guerre of Marco Cher-Gibard & Ben Speth, amalgamating crystalline guitar peregrinations with variously sprinkled and saturated tailored electronic augmentations and interventions, spun with elegant nuance and sublime abandon. When GNAUMGN self-identify their sonics as “FREENOISENEKROJAZZPUNKAMBIENTPOWERJAMS” and throw around terms like Driolegcidade and Triloxíanacathrach one must simply yield to these two musical metanoiacs and simply implore all to come bear witness. And Tina Douglas offers further insight into her singular audiovisual approach to spontaneity, revelling in the digital grit and grime of DIYcore coding culture and repurposing commercial-grade technologies wielded to her anarchistic artpunk will.
