Two Beaches

Development, Presentation

Two Beaches is a large-scale contemporary social art project engaging new communities to Australia in critical dialogue around temporal and philosophical concerns. During the process of development (the whole of 2015) a group of artists and thought leaders from across disciplines facilitate sessions around a variety of topics. These sessions will be recorded, and later rewritten into a script to be performed by professionals and community.

The resulting texts form part of a highly stylized large format video art work – a verbatim cinematic interactive artwork.

Two Beaches is designed to engage with articulate and passionate individuals who may have trained in other professions in their country of origin before coming to Australia – from International Relations to Law to Economy to Philosophy to Teaching – and who are not able to work within these fields in Australia.

Two Beaches will extend these dialogues/developments to communities cross Asia in 2016.

Oratunga Contemporary & Experimental Art (OCEA)

Exploraboratory (Arts Lab) and Supported Residencies

Ongoing program curated with Australian Experimental Art Foundation (AEAF)

 

Oratunga Contemporary Experimental Arts (OCEA) Program sees regional, urban and international artists together with local community members and leading artistic provocateurs working for an intensive period in an outback sheep station in remote Flinders Ranges, on the land of Oratunga.

The Exploraboratories explore land, culture, communities, hidden spaces, closed histories, and the nature and need for collaboration, artists (who may also be scientists, ecologists, sociologists) interrogate these enquiries under the guidance of leading artist-provocateurs.
Supported residencies vary according to need of the artist-group and time of year.
Watch this space for exploraboratories, supported residencies and gathering opportunities.
