Online (fishing)


Vella, JM, Online (fishing), Plimsoll Gallery, Tasmanian School of Art, Tasmanian School of Art, Hobart, pp. 28 (2010) [Curated Exhibition]


Online (fishing) is the third in a suite of exhibitions (the ON series) that invites artists, designers, engineers and architects to develop works in response to a particular medium, in this case fishing line. The ON series' premise evolved from a desire to shift the established curatorial approach that develops exhibitions in response to a particular thematic, and/or groups artists and designers according to their stylistic synchronicities. In thie context the premise IS the meterial, allowing a thinking to evolve through a tactile and sensitive making. Here, research and investigation is not orchestrated towards developing 'the masterpiece' but nuanced so as to provoke an opportunity to play. In thie space established modes of curating and exhibiting are shifted, thereby providing a structure through which to stimulate, nurture adn inspire.
