Taut: An Exhibition Review

BY Miranda Hine / Queensland University of Technology | 09-Jul-2018
Systems of support make for precarious object interactions in Ally McKay's exhibition Taut. Objects are assembled in tentative arrangements, expected - somehow- to support each other against inescapable physical forces. Taut invites us into a beautiful balancing act between tension, failure and endurance. It's an act we have all at some point been familiar with. In systems where rules have already been set, either social rules or rules of gravity, we have little choice but to navigate them regardless of how little sense they make or support they afford us. Using simple materials linked to building and construction, Ally reflects on her own vulnerabilities and the resilience required to constantly stay upright against the pressure to collapse and fall within these systems. Ally's constructions are a determination to make things work. Her quiet installations embrace fragility and speak of growth and adaptation to new environments.

In the anniversary year of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, the provocative project asks some moral as well as creative questions about how science operates today and might in the future.

BY ZiNC Communications | 01-Jul-2018
Sydney cabaret performer, Jodie Stubbs, will perform her new show, WOMAN - It's a Mother of a Cabaret, during the Melbourne Cabaret Fringe Festival. Co-written with award-winning director and performer, Tyran Parke, Jodie takes the audience on a humorous journey of what it is to be a mother, career woman, wife and cabaret chanteuse as she attempts to get through a 60-minute show without having to check on the kids. With music drawn from Broadway to Pop to R&B and soul, covering composers from Madonna, Stephen Sondheim and Fleetwood Mac, this funny and uplifting show explores in song and story what it’s like to be able to have it all … and the hidden costs. Jodie will be performing at The Butterfly Club from 9-14 July, provided she can arrange babysitting, that is.
