The Weltraum exhibition at Magpie Springs officially opened on Sunday, 11 September. Although the Shimmer Photographic Biennale closes at the end of September, the Weltraum exhibition remains open until early November--Sunday, November 6th.
I now start preparing for work for both the Abstraction x 5 exhibition at the Light Gallery, which opens on October 1st with its book launch; and then the Mallee Routes exhibition with Eric Algra and Gilbert Roe, which opens at the Atkins Photo Lab gallery on Friday, October 7th. It's a case of one exhibition down, two exhibitions to go, with the photography budget collapsing under the weight of the costs.
Curating these exhibitions has meant that there hasn't been much time available for my photography; apart from the odd moment here and there when I am away from the computer screen. This image was from once such moment:
We- the standard poodles and myself--- just happened to be walking past this dead tree as the sun was setting, whilst on a poodle walk
. The roadside vegetation along this stretch of road is thinning, and a lot of it is dying. No one cares for the roadside vegetation--only the roads are looked after.
On Tuesday last week I drove to Magpie Springs to start hanging Weltraum for the 2016 Shimmer Photographic Biennale , which opened on Friday 2nd September. I encountered fog on the top of Willunga Hill and Magpie Springs:
The last gasp of winter I wondered? We finished the hanging on Friday morning. Weltraum opens on Sunday, 11th September, at 3pm---a delayed launch due to the various exhibition launches at the other venues on the Saturday and Sunday of the first weekend.
