Femme Guild present HANKY PANKY – Hanky Code Party

Hanky Panky is a harking back to queer sub-cultures of the past as we delve into the rich history of queer semiotics & the socio-political reasons behind it. The party will be both fun & educational as we teach, learn (and unlearn) the ways we express our sexuality through gesture and dress.

Hanky-theme performances by Ginger Snaps, Zahra Stardust & Glittertrash.
Hankilicious DJs Tokyo Pink & Fisty Cuffs
Go-Go Dancers, Hanky Demonstrations and the very cheeky Dirty Little Slide Show, as well as Emergency Hankies for all you forgetful folk.

We invite all our guests to come flagging on the night for a bit of sex-positive fun whether you have one favourite colour hanky or a whole string of them you whip out magician-style from your bottomless back pocket.

Pre-sale tickets available exclusively from MaXXX Black, 1/264 King St, Newtown – $15/$20. We encourage you to pre-purchase your tickets as only a very limited number will be available on the night.

Hey Folks

I’ll be doing a wee showing of what I’ve been up to at Serial Space over the last couple of weeks on this Saturday July 4 from midday. Mostly I’ve been working on the wheelie bin…

For some time I’ve been interested in sound system cultures, particularly around the Caribbean and in South and Central America. Looking to build one locally, it occurred to me that a unique version already exists. John Jacobs <http://patchwrangler.net/> designed and built the original Wheely Good Sound System in the early nineties for use in urban actions/interventions such as Reclaim The Streets.

As part of my residency at Serial Space, I’m hoping to get all the systems in Sydney together. If you do have one, or any kind of portable sound system, mobile-robo disco unit please swing by around on Saturday July 4 at 2pm for some kind of enthusiasts meet / sound clash / road jam – we’ll take it to the streets, yes?

Clan Analogue Festival
Red Rattler Theatre
6 Faversham St, Marrickville
4PM-late, $7

Clan Analogue is Australia’s oldest electronic music/audio-visual collective. Over its history, many of Australia’s foremost proponents of electronic-based music and visual arts have contributed but, in recent times, the collective has become a little dormant on the public front. While it has never actually gone away, the Sydney chapter of Clan Analogue is preparing to relaunch its public face with a mini-festival of live music, DJ-ing and VJ-ing.

Bandwidth features some long-term members as well as younger groups who have been diversifying the aesthetics of the collective. With some of Sydney’s best underground live acts in their ranks, such as Bleepin’ J Squawkins, Lunar Module, Karoshi, Telafonica, Valley Forge and Kate Carr, along with DJs such as Tigerlily and the godfather of Australian electronic music, Andy Rantzen, the re-emergence of Clan Analogue in Sydney’s music scene is placed to be wildly varied and exciting.

Clan Analogue was birthed in the early 90s warehouse scene and so is proud to be working with Red Rattler Theatre and its ideals of artist run initiatives, community creativity and its D.I.Y. ethos.

‘FOREVER THE MOTION’
An Audio Visual Collaborative Collision
Featuring Robyn Wilson, Jack Dibben, Anthony Garvin, Jordana Maisie, Kirin J
Callinan & Morning Stalker

Sunday 17 May 2009
6pm
Black & Blue Gallery
302/267 – 271 Cleveland Street, Redfern

View of Courage is proud to present ‘Forever the Motion’, an audio visual collaborative performance featuring a unique cluster of highly progressive Sydney-based artists and musicians – Robyn Wilson, Jack Dibben, Anthony Garvin,
Jordana Maisie, Kirin J Callinan and Morning Stalker. Incorporating original compositions in music and sound design, video art, costume and movement, just 100 tickets will be released for the event, one that is set to be a cataclysm of
intense visual beauty and aural splendor.

Each individual creative holds a solid grounding in the Sydney art and music milieux, with a diversity of backgrounds that lay rich the context from which the forms and messages of the evening will transpire.

The key performance ‘Forever the Motion’ will feature Robyn Wilson (vox, costume, movement), a multi-disciplinary artist and musician who grounds the conceptual basis of the headline performance, as her personal journey shapes it.
This project embodying the next evolution in her ongoing fascination with the marriage of audio and visual practices into one momentous, multi-dimensional experience.

The original score also features the composition and performance of musician Jack Dibben (guitar, live fx), whose superb experimental approach invests heavily in a unique, improvisational sound aesthetic. Plus the remarkable
Anthony Garvin (live fx, sound design), whose production expertise brings a transformative ability to process and shape sound as it is created.

The video element of the key performance will feature the new media and electronic artist Jordana Maisie, whose interactive approach, exemplified throughout her video and sound works, will underpin a temporal association
between the aural, visual and physical realms.

The nature of the piece has a basis in continuity and cyclical progression and the correlation between expressive media and artistic interpretation.

Across five immediately consecutive movements, the performance elaborates experiential abstractions of the process of self, in action and progression. It attempts to explore the inherent balance of impetuosity and inevitability in our
decisions and the ways in which they ramify. Highly personal in its motivations, ‘Forever the Motion’ extrapolates the subjective mapping of an emotional experience in terms of transferable universals: black and white, sound and
silence, light and dark, perfection and defacement, stasis and motion, shattering and coalescence. These pairs are not binaries but continuums along which the five movements flow gesturally and conceptually.

The blurring of roles, boundaries, media and authorship, that underlie the examination of process and progress enacted imbue ‘Forever the Motion’ with a vitality and originality that places this special collaboration in an interesting position in the Sydney art scene.

Also featuring on the night, as an epic solo act, will be the strikingly distinguished, increasingly prominent Kirin J Callinan, a captivating musician-performer, of eminent Sydney band Mercy Arms and the explosive incidentalists Fashion Launches Rocket Launches. Beautiful, stirring, undeniable

  • Kirin is a vital figure in the current Sydney creative landscape. His approach to his shows “offer me a gig, I’ll give you a performance” speaks for itself.

Plus experimental, ambient soundscape 3-piece Morning Stalker made up of Morgan McKellar (guitar, live fx, vocals), Simon Oh (bass sax) and Marc Chomiki (drums) will lay forth the first layer of aural carpet throughout the unique and
splendorous space of Black & Blue Gallery.

There will be a live sound and video recording captured on the night, to then be produced as an independent audio visual piece due for release late-August. It is with great pleasure for View of Courage to announce that the sound
recording will be mixed and mastered at Studios 301, Australia’s most prestigious recording studios.

And.. if you want to play let me know, or just show up and play songs. Or scream shit. I want some fuckin’ intense spoken word def jam poetry shit going down.

There also might be curries to be eaten. If no curries, at least there will be soup. Maybe a tom yam. But I just made that last bit up then so maybe not tom yam.

Everyone bring instruments and be prepared to throw away all the super punk diy cred you been saving up all these years by partaking in hours of singalongs covering classics such as nirvana, grinspoon, jebediah, spiderbait and foo fighters. I might even pull out some Creed just to fuck with you all.

Yeah, come. If anyone can play Death to the Apple Girls on guitar then definitely definitely come.

Opening Friday February 27, 6 – 8pm

Martorell is a Melbourne based artist who’s work examines biological form and
its applications to the creation of sound based drawings and sculpture,
influenced by his work as a musician (Snawklor, The Hi God People).

Martorell’s process based methodology uses the gallery as a combination of
workshop and social meeting space where the gallery area is used as the basis
for a variety of improvised collaborations and performances.

Using the concept of transforming plant algorithms into musical scores, ‘Stolon
Tonals’ inhabits an imagined musical Diaspora where the rhythms and structures
of nature give form to a series of architectural models, sound works, costumes,
prints and drawings.

This is Dylan Martorell’s first solo show in Sydney.
He has previously shown internationally in both solo and group shows, in London
and New York.

*SNAP* is a new saxophone quartet, bringing together ideas from jazz and New
Music. New York émigré Phillip Johnston has joined with some of Sydney’s
best-loved saxophonists, Paul Cutlan, Sandy Evans and Nick Bowd, to begin
what they hope to be a long-lived chamber group championing new jazz and
classical saxophone quartet music. So far it features original compositions
by Sandy, Paul, and Phillip, as well as both Australian and American
composers from outside the group.

John Shand, in the *Sydney Morning Herald*, described their appearance at
the 2007 Jazz: Now Festival at the Sydney Opera House as, “*creating
sonorities from the Ellingtonian to the spiky*,” and music writer John Clare
called them “*full of early jazz quirkiness, impressionism and modernity*…”

Their combined C.V.s include work with the Australian Art Orchestra, The
catholics, Clarion Fracture Zone, MARA!, Guy Klucevsek, Gary Lucas, The
Microscopic Septet, James Morrison, Mike Nock, ROVA, Mikel Rouse,
Sousaphonics, Art Spiegelman, Lou Reed, 10 Part Invention, Gest8, & John
Zorn. Individually, they have toured Australia, Asia, Europe, the U.S., and

When: Wednesday February 4. Night begins at 7pm, movie starts at dusk
Where: Pavilion at Bondi Beach
What: Premiere of award-winning new film “Soldiers of Peace” – an uplifting story about the power of community movements

Nothing to do?
How about sitting by the beach watching a film under the stars? What if we add chilled music from Zimbabwe, cold drinks and comfy bean-bag recliners?

Still not sold? Join us at the Bondi Open Air Cinema and you will also see an inspirational new film about peace and meet hundreds of other GetUp members; plus all the proceeds will help GetUp create social change on issues you care about!

Creating change doesn’t always have to be hard work!

The award winning ‘Soldiers of Peace’ is an uplifting story of how, thanks to engaged citizens such as yourself, we are fast approaching ‘the outbreak of peace’. Narrated by Michael Douglas and featuring a host of well-known personalities, the film shows that by working together to combat global problems we can create a world flushed with peace not war.
Let’s take a moment together to draw inspiration from this film about incredible social movements, who like us, are engaging everyday people in creating a better world. Bring friends and family, grab a picnic and head down to Bondi Openair Cinema on Wednesday.
We’ll see you there!

Collaborating as the Mechano Brutalists, Sumugan Sivanesan & James Gulliver Hancock take a rough and ready approach to the plastic arts.

For Troubled Justice (2009) they combine assemblage, illustration and illumination – using milk crates, clip lamps, scrap car parts, abandoned bicycles and other debris, to recall the incidents surrounding the “Redfern Riots” and the death of a local aboriginal teenager, TJ Hickey in February 2004.

The work is part of an ongoing and multifaceted project, in consultation with Ray Jackson of the Indigenous Social Justice Association and TJ’s mother, Gail Hickey.

ECSTASY AND DECAY

Ideas of torture/sex, dungeons and dragons and role playing create ideas of opening your mind, freeing your thoughts and become heavily involved in things like fantasy, partying and new ideas of sex. Ecstasy and Decay is a pot of ideas and loss of self control, passion, drugs, presented in the idea of a makeshift cruising area or aftermath of a comic book convention. Any kind of rubbish dump and breeding ground for men, trolls and boys.

New archetypes – FRIENDS since birth, Screamin’ E. Hernia and Karl Richard-Marx formed New Archetypes in 2006 when it became apparent that Karl’s musical skills combined with fledgling guitarist, filmmaker and gutter poet Hernia’s songs formed the perfect recipe for a brutal new archetype. In a rehearsal room in their death-metal friend Billy’s warehouse flat above a smash repair joint in Redfern, they hammered away at their craft, throwing in covers by The Stooges, The Beasts of Bourbon and The Birthday Party, Karl accompanying variously on guitar, bass and a horrific optical theremin shaped like a baby doll’s head with red glowing eyes, which he ran through all manner of effects to synthesise the rotting belch of the devil. Hernia’s raspy screaming and shouting was terrifying. One evening, during a particularly bone-powdering jam, they earnt their first $5, when a tripping metal head who hung out at the flat stuck the money under the door, with a note pleading with them to stop making him feel like he was dying. Skip forward a few months, and Karl is at a party getting hammered. His brother Hans Regretel and friend The Naked Drewth mention they want to form a band, Hans being a bassist/guitarist, Drew being an aspiring drummer (in that he couldn’t play, but liked the idea). Karl and Hernia decided this mix of experience and inexperience (or innocence?) had an attractive Blakean undertone. Besides, this way there’d be more people to chip in for bourbon. Soon after, New Archetypes rehearsed together for the first time, The Naked Drewth having his first ever bash at a kit. With them was friend Ted Frostbite, an eccentric punk and pipe organ virtuoso, who’d performed recitals in places like the Sydney Town Hall and the Opera House. His father was also a keyboard player for Suzi Quattro, as well as The Who’s John Entwistle, Kiki Dee and Robert Palmer’s early-’70s group Vinegar Joe. Despite Ted’s extreme abilities in the art of fine music, he aimed for total chaos. The formula had been written. New Archetypes were complete. The first public New Archetypes gig took place January 5, 2007, at the Lansdowne Hotel and was cut short after just two songs because Screamin’ E. Hernia had already been in a fight with a bouncer and got kicked out. The band had to sneak him back in to play. They were compensated by the venue with unlimited free beer. Things just haven’t been the same since. Prepare yourself for NA. It will be loud. It will be brutal. It will be primitive. You will be addicted. NA beckons.

Maxwell stone – Formed 2005 in Enmore, Sydney. Maxwell Stone is described as Stoner Rock with metal inclinations. Members include Peter ”P.P.R.” Richards (Guitar/Drums)27,Albury ”Benny” West (Drums)24, Sam ”Rush” McNair (Vocals/Guitar)26 & brother Tom ”AKA1-Madman” (Lead Guitar)27. Maxwell Stone is the product of the now infamous ”Cakehole”. The Cakehole is a shoptop flat above a cake shop (though the cake shop no longer remains). Tom,Sam & friend since primary school Pete began jamming on an old borrowed amp inthe lounge room. It grew from there to playing at parties and soon enough in November 2005 the group played their first gig, Bar Broadway in Sydney. In 2007 Maxwell Stone recruited ex-Leprechaun Deathstar drummer Albury West. Maxwell Stone’s music was used in the soundtrack of ”Cheerleader Swap Meat” also playing at the Film launch in August 07. The group plays regular local shows and draws a dedicated fanbase. In 2008 Maxwell Stone has recorded a self titled E.P and plans to release in November. A tour of the Eastern States of Australia is planned for late 2008.

Conor O’Brien

There Stands The Glass

Opening 30th October

31st October – 16th November 2008

Conor O’Brien was recently referred to as one of the country’s ‘best, most interesting and certainly most promising’ young photographers by the Associate Curator of the Art Gallery of Western Australia, Dr Robert Cook.  In October and November 2008, Black & Blue Gallery will host O’Brien’s most recent body of work, There Stands The Glass. 

First shown at the Centre for Contemporary Photography (CCP) in Melbourne earlier this year, There Stands The Glass is a collection of colour photographs; portraits, landscapes and observations that are calm and considered, never poking fun at their subjects but always celebrating their beauty. The images were captured over two years and deal with people and the sense of people.  The subjects are almost always friends, family and the places that hold their spirit.

The Age reviewer Penelope Modra wrote of There Stands The Glass, “[O’Brien]’s not asking you to look through his eyes as thought they are your own and share some modernist‘epiphany moment’. It’s just an invitation to feel, well, what you feel.”

O’Brien has shown work at the Australian Centre for Photography, the Centre for Contemporary Photography, The National Portrait Gallery, The Art Gallery of

Western Australia, the Perth Institute of Contemporary Art, Utopian Slumps Gallery and was included in the New York Photography Festival 2008.  He currently lives and works in Sydney.

The fabled myths of death, the grotesque and the bizarre come to life in an excessively ornamented carnivale in Raquel Welch and Emily Hunt’s ‘Hoochie Choochie.’ Imaginary beasts and exaggerated caricatures are displayed in an
set-up which can best described as a behavioural study of the fantastic. Each scene features craftily constructed figures that are embellished with a nod to the crude elements of voodoo. But with a natural disposition towards the absurd,
Hunt & Welch’s make-believe underworld is nothing short of eccentric.
