3 - 20 December | CURTAIN CALL | The rough end of the pineapple

Xanthe Dobbie | Troy Emery | Simone Hine | Ted McKinlay | Melanie Upton | Tim Woodward

Curtain Call : The rough end of the pineapple presents a selection of artists who have previously exhibited at BLINDSIDE since our launch in 2004, along with one artist who we welcome into the BLINDSIDE family. The exhibition explores the artistic and cultural connection that exists between Queensland and Melbourne through the journeys of the two curators and the artists, each of whom have moved from the Sunshine state to Melbourne to further their practice. A public forum will be held in conjunction to extend and facilitate the artistic dialogue between the exhibiting established and emerging artists. Curators: Robert Heather and Verity Hayward

Zoe Scoglio, Resonant Ruins, 2014 (3:49 minutes) | C​ourtesy of the artist.
An archaeological study, a site responsive video, made in conversation with metals found around the Upfield train line.  Resonant Ruins contemplates the varied forms raw materials take during their life cycles, the temporal nature of our own existence and the remnants we leave behind.  Initially created for a lane way at night, this work continues an enquiry into the points in which the human and non-human worlds intersect.
