The ‘6027 Project’ Documentation Exhibition
Documentation of the mural produced at Admiral Park (Joondalup, WA) will be exhibited in Blend(er) Gallery from 3-8th of April. Photographs and video by Marc Ash and John Pearse aim to highlight the different artistic approaches Trevor and myself used in the murals production, revealing our individual cultural influences and the processes of curated collaboration. Collaboration is now largely taken for granted as one of the numerous ways that artists can choose to operate. Despite this, artistic collaboration still raises some interesting and crucial questions about the nature of authorship, authenticity and the artists’ relationships to their works & audiences that inevitably disrupt the persistent and popular image of the artist as a ‘heroic’ solitary figure.
This collaboration bares eloquent witness to the sensitivity and respect with which the artists responded to one another and the surrounding community. The modifications we did make and the passages of over painting are testament to a working atmosphere of mutual appreciation and acceptance.
At the heart of this exhibition are original designs from participants of the art workshops that we held at Belridge High School. Participants worked with many mediums; often pencils, pens, pastels and paint on paper with a loose and spontaneous style that shows a fascination with the process of creating.
