Smell You Later
SMELL YOU LATER is a site-specific installation centred around the adolescent saying. Because of its childish nature this old ... adage is humorous, endearing and charming all at once. The absurdity of this installation seeks to bring the viewer the same sense of naivety that comes from children’s perceptions within the context of the everyday. That humour can exist in the banal and that novelty within inanity can be paramount.
The universe of Sue-Ching Lascelles is one which is both commonplace and out of place at the same time. She dreams like a juvenile delinquent of two separate worlds, a place where childhood obsessions are validated in the transition to adulthood. It’s a universe where make-and-do marry the outlines of reality and then smudges those outlines a little bit, making it hard to tell where the ordinary ends and the extraordinary begins.
PACO PARK attempts to re-create the aesthetics and branding of an imaginary fashion brand. It comprises a series of jackets (26 x 42cm) in riotous colours accompanied by a fashion brand logo, Paco Park. Paco Park invites audiences to question the distinction between art and fashion. Is window99 a store window or a gallery space? Are the jackets for sale, as fashion or as art?
AT ROLLERDOOR PERFORMANCE SPACE
MAKA KHAN is a new instrumental three piece starting to make in roads into the Melbourne improvised and experimental music scene. The group comprising MARCOS VILLALTA (guitar/effects), PARIS FAVILLA (Alto saxophone) and SARAH GALDES (drums) all finished their improvisation degrees at the VCA at the end of 2010 and since then have been involved in a wide variety of music from experimental duos to folk, gypsy, funk, neo-soul and straight ahead Jazz. In Maka Khan they explore the baseless trio format with dynamic, textural and wide ranging original compositions and thoughtful reworkings of jazz standards from the past and present.
