Next Wave in Tokyo

Last night, Y3K's James Deutsher opened his new exhibition at Art Center Ongoing, as part
of his and Christopher L G Hill's Invisible Structures residency.

Invisible Structures: Australian artist collectives in Tokyo, Singapore and Yogyakarta' is a
residency and exhibition project by Next Wave in collaboration with Asialink. It involves three
Australian artist-run initiatives in Tokyo, Singapore and Yogyakarta. James and Christopher
have made new sculptures, paintings, textiles, sound works and performance for their
residency at the Kichijoji art space. This new show follows on from Christopher's one-day
sculptural installation and performance in Tokyo last December and features James' clay
and fibreglass sculptures, architectural structures, and a series of tailored jackets made from
the artist‟s screen-prints. The fabric is from web-sourced images of the Tokyo architecture
company SANAA.

People at Platform

2010 Next Wave Festival identity designers People Collective are also real artists. To prove
it they have an exhibition of new art work, albeit graphic-based, opening at Platform
tomorrow night. They wont tell us too much about it, and there's nothing on the Platform
website about it, except we know it features a series of 'linguistic explorations' (as it says on
the poster).

Anyway, it opens tomorrow at 6pm at Platform, in the Degrave St subway, and runs until the
end of the month.

Dylan Martorell at Gertrude

Melbourne-based cross-disciplinary artist Dylan Martorell has a new solo exhibition opening
tomorrow in the front gallery of Gertrude Contemporary titled Agvas De Marco.
Dylan has created sound installations from 'up-cycled' detritus that gives new life and
function to discarded materials; his practice is primarily concerned with the human trail
evident in our refuse.

Dylan Martorell has been exhibiting and performing for over ten years. Central to his
multidisciplinary practice is an intense interest in the full spectrum of music and sound
sources. Martorell‟s installations often take the form of electro-acoustic instruments featuring
found and handcrafted elements that extend into magical assemblages of sound, costume
and other apparatus and exist well beyond the confines of the gallery. Alongside Dylan's
front gallery exhibition he will also take over Studio 12 where he will be curating a series of
revolving sound projects in collaboration with local musicians and artists.

Opening tomorrow night at 6pm, 4 February, 2011
Running until 5 March, 2011

At Gertrude Contemporary
200 Gertrude St, Fitzroy
Tuesdays to Fridays 11am to 5:30pm
Saturdays 11am to 4:30pm

Carl gives Perth a hand

Next Wave artist Carl Scrase has re-mounted a 14-metre high inflatable sculpture of a hand
for the Perth Cultural Centre. Titled The Generative Power of Opposites, it draws on the
positive and negative meanings of the two-finger V symbol; having long been associated
with peace, optimism and hope, the same gesture is also used to offend. (The work was
originally commissioned by Splendid and first shown at Splendour in the Grass in 2010.)

The sculpture is the first piece in a twelve-month public art program for the Perth Cultural
Centre. Throughout 2011 the works of several successful and emerging West Australian,
interstate and international artists will be on display. The program will focus on temporary
and ephemeral public art, including installations, performances and events.

The Generative Power of Opposites is on display until this Sunday 6 February, 2011. (Map:




New Work By Jordana Maisie

Democrata Automata, an exhibition of kinetic sculpture, by Next Wave installation artist
Jordana Maisie, is an ironic play on the individual‟s relationship to desire and consumption,
and it opens a MARS tomorrow night. Jordana made new work for the 2010 Next Wave
Festival's Sports Club project at the MCG last year.

From Jordana: “I am interested in experience: in its creation and manipulation. This fixation
has led me to examine, critique and offer alternatives to the ways in which technology
dominates everyday experience. Democrata Automata explores how and why humanity has
evolved to rely on these technologies for everyday sustenance. This show will catch you in
the act.”

Opening tomorrow at 6pm, 4 February, 2011
Running until 27 February, 2011

At Melbourne Arts Rooms
418 Bay Street, Port Melbourne
