“Vessels of history -” Limits “- Lines – Between – Apart”
Story Vessels – ‘Boundaries’ Lines – Between – Apart will be exhibited at the Gympie Regional Gallery from Thursday September 9 to Saturday October 2.
This amazing exhibit explores the concept of how society’s perception of “borders” has changed since COVID-19. Everything from our movement, our work patterns, our social interactions and the role of “home” has changed in one way or another.
The idea of drawing boundaries is both aggressive and protective, in the sense that we seek the comfort of safety and belonging.
This exhibition explores the ways in which we “mark” a border and the physical experience of crossing that border.
Among other works, a slideshow of photos illustrating different types of borders and objects will be projected on the walls.
These photos will have been taken in the Gympie region by members of the Gympie Camera Club.
This exhibit is developed by venue creation professionals Samantha Taylor and Miles Allen of Projects Fort Awesome and is supported by the Government of Queensland through Arts Queensland.
Admission to the Gympie Regional Gallery at 39 Nash Street is free, with opening hours from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.
