OPENING NIGHT: Friday 9 April 2010 - 7pm
The Versus Show hits back with its very unique 4th edition. This collaborative show featuring Kylie Fisk (Brisbane) Vs. Laura Skerlj (Melbourne) promises to intrigue, engage and incite.
These two inspiring female artists have been exploring the land of dreams, the sublime, nature, and ethereal landscapes through their mediums of photography and painting.
Their work is stunning and feminine, the artists themselves coming from backgrounds in psychology and journalism, their work is loaded with intellect, purpose and beauty.
Alongside the artwork the rest of the gallery, for the opening night, will be transformed into an interactive and engaging dreamlike scene; turning the gallery environment into something quite surreal.
Part of the special entertainment will be Hero & Shadow, a new musical project, specifically designed for The Vs. Show. In duo formation-(Madeleine Paige & Arundel), H & S's set will be completely improvised; inspired both by the artwork and the interplay between the musicians themselves. Also featuring Kate Jacobson in her own act - performing some of her sweet alt-country tunes.
Other elements will feature performance, animation and set design sponsored by New House Cinema.
This Versus Show is not only about experiencing the artwork of two talented artists but also basing the gallery environment on the essence of their work.
The ‘versus' concept was spawned in 2008 by artist Mel Baxter (curator CURVY 09, Frankie Hand Drawn & Dane Beesley's New York Buck)
COCKTAIL AFTERPARTY: 11pm - Laruche.
