about-face/ about-place

Caloundra Regional Gallery – Curated by writer and artist, Kevin Wilson, about-place / about-face exhibition takes a very different viewpoint on the concept of ‘natural place’. Working from the assumption that our perspective and understanding of ‘natural place’ is imbued with our own lived experience. Artist interviews: http://brnw.ch/aboutplace

BACKtoGETher – Bodylandscape, by Sharka Bosakova, 2024. Mixed media sculpture

This work draws inspiration from my exploration of emotions, physical action, and the theme of perpetual resurrection. Building on my body-centred body of work, it seeks to delve deeper into the concept of ‘Body landscape surveillance,’ where the human form becomes a metaphorical terrain shaped by the ebbs and flows of emotions and experiences. It explores the perpetual process of self-renewal and reconstruction, returning to its form yet never in the same form.

UnMasked_Hollows & Thorns exhibition

UnMasked _ Hollows and Thorns
28th October – 4th December
Sharka Bosakova @ Butter Factory Art Centre

Hollows and Thorns is a unique project that builds on Sharka Bosakova’s UnMasked. The artist explores the landscape of our own bodies in an immersive environment open to dialogue, collaboration, and interaction through movement, sound, emotional and cultural experience.

The artist on-site in a performative interactive context constantly develops the exhibition environment and provides local artists and the public with a platform and expressive voice through a series of workshops. The project aims to strip away the façade of selfhood.

This project is supported by the Australian Government, Regional Arts Australia and Flying Arts Alliance.
