The Billboard Project

The Billboard Project is a series of large format photographic billboards that create unexpected public galleries in and around the Keilor Road Shops in Niddrie.

The locations can be discovered around Wallace Mall, and they connect to the billboard in the front garden of the Incinerator Gallery.

These public sites feature changing exhibitions by some of Melbourne's best contemporary artists. Elvis Richardson, Clare Rae, Zoe Croggon, Petrina Hicks, Mike Read, Genevieve Grieves, Dianne Jones, James Voller and Steven Rhall have all exhibited in these spaces.

Honey Long and Prue Stent

25 January – 27 May, 2019

Amobea Phase II, 2015, archival pigment print

Working across photography, performance, installation and sculpture, Honey Long and Prue Stent (both b. 1993, Sydney, Australia) have been making art together since they were teenagers. The collaborative artists employ the body, the Australian landscape, and unconventional materials to distort and fragment the bodily form - often with unexpected outcomes. Dreamy, fluid, saccharine, gritty and fleshy, Long and Stent challenge and captivate audiences with powerful imagery that crosses the subversive and the surreal.

In their photographic series, Phanta Firma, Long and Stent quote and appropriate signs, tropes, and motifs of women from contemporary culture and the canon of art history as an erotic lure that guides the viewer into unfamiliar territory. Embodying Botticelliean nymphs and Venuses, Classical sculptures, and sirens, their bodies are draped in material that clings or billows in a seductive Monroe-esque fashion. Their gaze never confronts the viewer. Rather than passive, still and compliant, these young figures are in control, self-assured, and enjoying their own agency as they completely immerse themselves in their hyper real earthly landscapes.

Long and Stent currently live and work in Melbourne, Australia and are represented by ARC ONE Gallery, Melbourne.

Malini Maunsell

Inner Terrain 

Wednesday 8 May – Wednesday 3 July, 2019

Through Malini is Australian-born but has lived most of her life overseas. Living in other countries and cultures formed her, and was rich in many, many ways while at the same time leading into, and then through deep feelings of loss from not really belonging anywhere and always being “away”.

Malini’s work reflects her lengthy engagement with searching for place, and its ultimate resolution by finding sturdy inner ground. This can be seen, for example, in her use of multiple layers (15 to 20) over a period of time, her tendency to work with found marks and in series’, and in the depth and silence of each completed print.

Frank Bonnici

Tuesday, 26 February – Sunday, 26 May

Bodies and identities are always in flux and changing, never stable. My work represents and (re)imagines the possibilities of what we are and what we might become. Each of my works is formed using a number of life models. Their fractured shapes and bodies show us the delusion of separated bodies and truly formed identities, whether that be gender, nationality, or age; just to name a few of the ways we are often separated from each other and siloed into “the individual”.

My work is mixed medium, comprising of acrylic paints and markers, ink pens, and oil pastels. I'm particularly interested in bodies and their shapes, and as such have developed a life drawing business (@lastpeekstudio) as a means to ongoing access to life models and the inspiration they provide.
