Mediums merge in The Index

By Ashleigh Fielding | posted on November 16, 2019

THE work of five Great Southern artists from different mediums will converge next week in an exhibition at Denmark Community Resource Centre.

Photographer Nic Duncan, choreographer Annette Carmichael, textile artist Janine McCrum, sound designer James Gentle and sculptor Kevin Draper will feature in multimedia installation, The Index from Thursday, November 21 until December 1.

The Index will include photographs taken by Duncan of Carmichael in a variety of environments, to highlight sites of regeneration and industry.

McCrum’s textile art and Gentle’s “haunting” musical soundscape will provide the backdrop of the exhibition – a backdrop of hundreds of egg shells – while a variety of Draper’s sculptures will be seen in some of Duncan’s photos.

Carmichael described the exhibition as “a study on harmony and disruption created in response to escalating global levels of fear and terror”.

The Index has previously toured the Bunbury Regional Art Galleries and Esperance’s Cannery Arts Centre.

During the exhibition’s Denmark launch next Thursday, Carmichael will launch her company’s 2020 program and speak about the progress of one of her current projects, Chorus.

Ticket sales for the 2020 program’s performances will also launch on the night.

The exhibition opening commences at 5.30pm on November 21 and entry is free.
