I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change (Musical)

BY Sherryl-Lee Secomb | 14-Feb-2018
I LOVE YOU, YOU’RE PERFECT NOW CHANGE, is a hilarious musical, celebrating the mating game, taking on the truths and myths behind that contemporary conundrum know as 'the relationship.'

BY Interlude Gallery | 13-Feb-2018
Interlude Gallery is pleased to invite you to the closing feast of 'Absolute Kippleization' by Rachel Honnery.

Dick’s 1968 post-apocalyptic novel, this exhibition brings together science and art. Honnery uses the tangability of discarded hard plastics to remind us of the effects that these now useless objects are having on our marine environments. As P.K. Dick warned us ‘when nobody is around, kipple reproduces itself (…) It gets more and more.’
