Art Matters – The Island – kicks off with great success

Art Matters – The Island – kicks off with great success

Monday 6 March saw the launch of The Island – the third project of Art Matters.

The Island focuses on the transformation of two utilitarian objects: industrial pallets and wheelie bins. Industrial pallets are being transformed into a series of personalised islands which will become a series of individualised art objects, performance spaces and film sets for a wheelie bin Camera Obscura to create a photographic exhibition, performance moments and screened outcomes.

The  Art Matters series provides ongoing meaningful arts participation for adults living with a disability for whom there are no other arts opportunities offered in the Wimmera region. The project isbe supported by local visual artist Anthony Pelchen, dance artist Amy Anselmi and videographic artist David Bowe and this year introduces Arts Access Victoria artist Rhian Hingklys’ Camera Obscura practice.

The group meets weekly each Monday from 4-6pm (except Public Holidays and School Holidays) at Jubilee Hall, Horsham.

The Island is supported by the Victorian Government through Creative Victoria.
