FEATURE ZINE

INTERVIEW :: ANNE HARRIS

The zines ‘Lovingly Interrupted’ & ‘Expressions of Love II’ were created to accompany an exhibition of the work of Anne Harris and Kim Schoenberger. Since the exhibition, the zine has taken a life of its own, becoming a new way for Harris to share her voice and her unique pieces of slow-art with the world. Upasana Papadopoulos spoke to Harris about the exhibition, lessons learned from zine-making and the evolution of her work.

Black and White – No Shades of Grey

Learning new things, and just taking a short time out to play, helps me let go of the shoulds. Its so easy to get caught up in producing work for specific purposes, pre-comitted ideas that have deadlines and external inspiration. Going inside and forgetting all that grown up stuff, making marks and gestures with a medium, giving myself permission to make mistakes.

Kym Barrett’s cold wax workshop at the Noosa Regional Gallery ticked all the boxes, she is a teacher that is firmly grounded in her own practice. Comfortable and confident in sharing the techniques, and for this workshop the refreshing […]

Lovingly Interrupted

Inspiring Quotes from the Conference …….   Canberra March 2013

“Tradition is not Static” Christiane Keller, School of Archaeology and Anthropology, The Australian National University

“Culture evolves, Aunty Joice makes her scoops in the footy colours” Melanie Evans, Art Gallery Assistant, Wagga Wagga, Art Gallery

Currency of BirdSong – Floating Land 9th June 2013 – Cooroora Institute

780  Belli  Creek Road, Cooroy, Sunshine Coast, Queensland

11am to 4pm Exhibition, Music, Workshops and Food.

What if we used wild birdsong as an indicator of success and status? Instead of asking about jobs or money, we might ask of any process: “yes, but does it produce birdsong?” The currency of birdsong would be seasonal, diverse, and biogeographic; bird habitats would be more important than banks; value would be tied to the ritual of everyday’s dawning and twilight; outside life connected to local places.

About the Process… My passion for the environment underpins all that I create. I am a windfall gatherer, sometimes […]

My  collection of  baskets for this show was called “Days of the Week” and was a forever growing and changing collection, each one had its own title and identity. I used to have a  feeling of not being able to achieve anything creative as […]
