Drifting, Driveling, Dribbling: exhibition by BIA staff

Posted on Aug 31, 2016 in Art & Design, Events


Please come on Friday at 6pm at Sheffer gallery (38 Lander St, Darlington) for the opening of the exhibition ‘Drifting, Driveling, Dribbling’.

This exhibition has been organised by a group of scholars, architects and artists from the UNSW Interior Architecture department (Samantha Donnelly, Dr Laurence Kimmel),Sydney University’s Faculty of Architecture (Professor Michael Tawa), and Vesna Trobec.

Based on the idea of SHIFT and DRIFT, a selection of drawings, paintings, videos and texts will be on display in the gallery space. All works will consider architecture in cinema or the architecture of cinema, and in particular will relate to two main movies: The Conformist by Bernardo Bertolucci and Werckmeister Harmonies by Béla Tarr.

Along with contributions from UNSW and Sydney University, the exhibition includes works from French artists exploring the links between architecture and cinema: Géraldine Trubert, Marie Reinert and Claire-Jeanne Jézéquel. A version of the exhibition was shown in Berlin in July–August 2015, and is visible here: http://www.lage-egal.de/exhibitions/ungefaehr-vier/

These three French female artists have never exhibited in Australia before. A live link to chat with the artists will be set up on opening night. This exhibition will be a bridge between disciplines – architecture, cinema, art – and between countries – France and Australia.

Opening night: Friday 2 September, 6 pm–9 pm, Sheffer gallery (38 Lander St, Darlington)
