Natural Scale


Munday, I, Natural Scale, Penny Carey-Wells and Diane Perndt, Burnie, touring regional Tasmania, pp. 1 (2011) [Representation of Original Art]


Penny Carey-Wells and Diane Perndt curated Tasmania 1:100,000 Mapping the Island exhibition for the Ten Days on the Island Festival 2009, that is the leading biannual arts event in Tasmania, Australia. Selected national and international artists, including poets, chefs, wine makers, dancers, musicians, papermakers, printmakers and mixed media visual artists, received a section taken from a topographical map of Tasmania. They were asked to create a two-dimensional paper based response measuring 29 x 29 cm square. Over 140 extraordinary works were received - each piece telling its own story from the deeply personal, to the wonderfully witty and the aesthetically masterful. From the original exhibition the curators have selected nearly of half the works for further touring. Most of these are now housed in individual perspex display boxes suitable for a multitude of venues. The tour begins in Burnie Regional Art Gallery opening on 28 January 2011 after which it will travel to other Tasmania regional centres.
