Dark Matters at Art Blast: 24 – 26 February

In the last weekend of February, Punctum presents ART BLAST as part of the Next on Now program.  I am lucky enough to have been a mentor for Next on Now and a participating artist in the AR

T BLAST weekend.

ART BLAST will see the fruits of a six month collaboration between twelve Central Victorian artists in a weekend long arts festival presented by Punctum. ART BLAST is part of the Next on Now program.  The Next on Now program has provided local emerging artists a creative development program with support, resources and workshops together with professional mentoring by practicing artists. The results are an extraordinarily diverse collection of professional artistic works which explore themes of love, death, childhood, sex, identity and public / personal space.

As part of ART BLAST,  I will be presenting DARK MATTERS: an exploration of darkness developed through Pucntums seedpod program.   DARK MATTERS will engage audiences bodies and minds to examine the possibilities of experiencing darkness as a space of contemplation and imagination.

It will be performed at the following times:

Saturday 25 February 6.00pm and 8.30pm and Sunday 26 February 2pm and 6.00pm at The Old Fire Station, Bendigo
