The Space

window99 was an installation space in the window of 99 Brunswick Street, Fitzroy. It was a not-for-profit, artist focused space, open 24 hours a day, everyday.

The Idea

window99 offer an alternative to exhibiting art within the white cube by moving the gallery into the public setting. This also provided artists with an opportunity to exhibit their work within a highly exposed, flexible window box for an affordable rate.

The New Venture

window99 has now resolved with a new space three doors up being the next venture for Marie and Leo. The new initiative is called Conduit Arts and continues the window99 and Rollerdoor Performance Space focus on bringing emerging artists, musician and performers together along with their audiences.

Ben Taranto & Cherie Winter's URBAN MATTER draws on the abstractions surrounding built and natural environments. Autumn leaves are seasonally collected and disposed of, seen as unsightly bio foul detrimental to both urban waterway constructions and tram activity. Using these urban tree leaves as matter, this work returns them to their original urban environment whilst completely filling the gallery's window spaces. The artists see this action as one that explores notions of waste material and urban maintenance.

Mattress of Pagan Horror is an experimental music group formed by the Brothers Kavanagh in mid 2010 to explore their joint interest in free and improvised music. Utilising non-conventional instrumentation, the duo creates spontaneous sound scapes with the emphasis being on interaction and dynamic and textural interest. Recently the duo have been focusing on the introduction of thematic ideas into their compositions as a way of creating stepping stone like melodic and rhythmic points amidst their improvisations.
