Press Her at KUDOS Gallery featuring sound artists Joji Malani and Joel van Gastel, with performances by Boni Cairncross, James Batchelor, Ryl Harris, Lucy Westbrook, Veronica Barac and Emma Batchelor. Produced by Joel van Gastel and Paul Beckett. The performances ran continuously for well over an hour, the first thing to hit me was the strong smell of fresh coffee - in a fish tank being walked back and forth across the entry area of the gallery; is it too obvious to say 'wake up - experience the art'..!! The coordinated performances making up the whole had an impeccable tempo, the mood building almost unperceivably with Joji Malani on guitar; in a NECKS like performance right there.
What's in Dogue? Next was a perfect example of I have no idea what I'm going to see. David Capra & Teena the Dachshund at the launch of, EAU DE WET DOGGE at Gallery 9 in Darlinghurst. Was the perfume spray, the bubble gun and Teena a performance? Of course it was! And an art installation, lots of fun; not too sure about the scent!
Meanwhile at Art House in Rushcutters Bay the art was progressive rock-ing out with live performance by Timothy McPhee & Jason Tanpake from Firekites for Aaron Kinnane's Winter Passing, Milk Moon Rising.
