Polygraphics: Walking the Line

9 – 28   MAY

10-4.45 m-f, 1-4 sat

Taking their cue from the polygraph machine and the phrase “walk the line”, artists visually and conceptually explore line as a fallible disseminator of truth. Through a diverse spectrum of visual arts practice, the unfettered, progressive, illusory or indeterminate readings of line are presented as having both the potential to hinder or empower the meaning of work.

Curated by Anna Nazzari, featuring new works by Tori Pattinson, Erin Coates, Anna Nazzari, Ryan Nazzari, Consuelo Cavaniglia, Alex Spremberg, Marzena Topka, Tanisha Burtnyk, Clare Peake, Fiona Harman and Andrew Nicholls

Ghost of Record Store by Chris Cobilis

7 May – 4 June

Thurs – Sun 12-6 Shopfront gallery at 149 Beaufort St

Composer, artist and improviser Chris Cobilis, recreates a record store as a homage to the dead formats, replicating it with a carbon copy – a bootleg record store. GRS contains no original media, only copies to which the public are invited to listen using turntables, cassette decks and CD players – playing the bootlegged, colourless, valueless simulacrum that reflect on a time gone by.   Presented by perthFLUX, a Perth Public Art Foundation Program.
