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.

Kent Morris

30 May – 23 September

Kent Morris art practice reveals the continued presence and patterns of Aboriginal history and culture in the contemporary Australian landscape, despite colonial interventions that have irreversibly altered the environment.

Through his artworks he is reconstructing the shapes and structures of the built environment to reflect the rhythms, shapes of and geometric designs of the Australia's First People.
 
The interaction of native birds and the built environment reflects continual changes to ecological systems and the natural environment. Learning from the rhythm and habits of native birds in urban spaces, he experiences how birds have adapted to the built environment, to technology and colonialism, reflecting the ways in which Indigenous cultures survive and adapt.
 
The locations of the photographs map Kent’s connections to Country which centre around where he lives and work, my ancestral Country, family and cultural exchange.
 
Kent Morris is represented by Vivien Anderson 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.

Voula Christopoulos

Tuesday, 28 May – Monday, 12 August 2019

Voula Christopoulos’ current work is focused on memories, dreams and the subconscious.

The work is an exploration of domestic interiors, since the home is where we dream and memories are made. It is also an intimate place, where we can retreat into our own mind space.

The paintings are glimpses of domestic interior spaces, often not fully described, like a fragmented recollection of a dream or memory.
