This September, internationally renowned performance artists Zierle & Carter will take a side trip from their residency with Chamber Made Opera in Melbourne to travel to Brisbane as QCA Galleries and exist present the first exist Live Art Intensive at POP Gallery, Wooloongabba.
“You could think of them as Marina and Ulay with a contemporary sense of theatricality and props, but it might be more exquisite to forget that historical precedent entirely and concentrate instead on Zierle and Carter?s ability to create a surrealistic situation out of nothing more than a bunch of red balloons.” Lori Waxman, art critic
“The triumph of this pair is their sensitivity to material. Objects become extensions of the body rather than ill-fitting props.” Quinn Dukes, top 5 current contemporary performance artists for Artists Lists website
Below is a special invitation from Alexandria and Paul
We would like to invite you to participate in …
Conversations on Sense of Belonging
Through our current project ‘Between Lands: A Sense of Belonging Enquiry’ we have been investigating sense of belonging and cultural identity in Australia; what role does it play in our daily lives and how does it influence our decisions and shape our actions.
During our recent residency in Melbourne we have started a series of one to one interviews/conversations with people from various backgrounds and age groups and will be continuing with this same series of questions during our residency in Brisbane at the POP Gallery.
The conversations are a gentle exploration of what invokes a sense of belonging, what does sense of belonging mean for you personally and what is the opposite experience. We will look at personal stories, individual definitions, expressions, and sensory factors that can invoke a sense of belonging. One of the key questions explored is what actions do people take in order to move from a place of ‘non belonging’ to a place of belonging and what keeps people’s sense of belonging intact in times of change. The conversations are sound recorded, are kept anonymous, and can take place in any suitable space with privacy away from other distractions and noise.
We will use the interview material as our resource, inspiring new interactive performances, social sculptures, and interventions. None of the material is used literally/re-enacted, instead acts as a stimulus for new ideas. All of the research gathered in Australia will then travel back to the UK and inform our new work, a Living Room Opera, in collaboration with Chamber Made Opera (Melbourne) and In Between Time Productions (UK) and premiered in Bristol, UK in February 2013, then it will travel back to Melbourne for October 2013.
We are also planning on editing the sound recordings into a sound piece that will be part of a performance/sound installation in the near future and possibly become part of our Living Room Opera. The voices will be edited into a continuous stream of sound, at times only one or two voices will be audible and at others an entire chorus. Each voice reveals only a fragment of their story, weaving in and out of each other. This way each speaker will be part of the collective voice and stays anonymous. If preferred we can change the pitch of the voice so that it becomes unrecognisable.
If you would like to arrange a conversation, or have any questions about the project please contact Alexandra or Paul via email: firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
Thank you for your interest in our project.

recent work by PHD Candidate Elizabeth Gray
Contemporary imaginings of the sea…..fragments and detritus documented and reinterpreted as representations of vessels and voyages from the past.
Natacha Arena is a visual artist who focuses on painting as principal medium. She started her Fine Arts and Art History studies in Brussels (Belgium) and she pursued her studies in Singapore, LASALLE College of the Arts where she obtained a Master Degree in Fine Arts in 2010.
Arena’s art practice operates between figuration, landscape and abstract painting. Her research is re-questioning process in painting and the role of intuition through diverse modi operandi and materials. The concept of ‘fragmentation’ and ‘traces’ are widely translated in her work exploring and creating a visual language that acts as a link between painting and installation, investigating the relation between space, perception and memory.
