News and events


Dianne Longley was awarded the Nathalie Leader Memorial Acquisitive Print Prize 2007 at the Barossa Regional Gallery on 8 April. Her work 'Future/Past (Wild Onion & Nut Grass)', a digital inkjet print on paper and film, began with a photograph she took at 'The Garden of Unearthly Delights' at the 2006 Adelaide Fringe.

In this imagined space she added South Australian weeds, wild onion and nut grass, writ large. Longley observes that weeds are plants that migrate to new lands and crowd out native plants, and that humans are like weeds. Other visual elements include a clown who looks on at the metaphysical landscape, a ladder that offers escape from the present situation, and a hand with miniature symbols suggesting that renewal is possible.

This work was exhibited in the Adelaide Fringe 'Hedgemaze' exhibition at Light Square Gallery in March, and was selected for the Broken Hill Outback Art Prize, on exhibition 23 March-6 May 2007.


Aurelia Carbone was the only Australian artist in Major World Digital Media Exhibition, 9th Japan Media Arts Festival, Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography, Tokyo, Japan.

Andrew Petrusevics exhibited his video installation 'ethink and Laminex Malevich's' in the 2006 Adelaide Biennial of Australian Art at the Art Gallery of South Australia, Adelaide Festival of Arts.
