GASP All Night

 

An evening of audience engagement in which artists Janet Laurence and Tega Brain reveal their proposition for a hugely ambitious new work: an island for Elwick Bay. Developed as a part of GASP’s Swimmable initiative, Parliament: An Island in an Island blurs the boundaries between art, environmental science, engineering and interspecies relations. The presentation and discussion will be punctuated by visuals, working designs, sound and projection and the opportunity to contribute to this proposition.

Parliament will be followed by an advance preview of artist and filmmaker James Newitt’s new film A Plan For Escape. The film chronicles the story of 18-year-old Jane Cooper who in 1971 moved to De Witt Island off the southern coast of Tasmania and vowed never to return.

Newitt has also curated Cine Escape, a season of films that have been important to the artist in the development of his new work, which will be screened throughout the night.
