Murwillumbah Art trail organisers Invite the community to experience a very special architectural projection exhibition on the evening of May 27 in Wharf Street Murwillumbah. The wall of the Southern Cross Credit Union building will be the site of this very special event.
The Architectural Projection Project is an exhibition of digital art exploring the theme of the Past, Present and Future of the Tweed Valley with artists Peter Charuk and Di James creating a contemporary and multilayered response.
Curator Annie Long explains, “ both artists have responded to the theme of past, present, future with inspiration from the Tweed Regional Museum collection.”
Artist Di James says “Time to heal the past, time to be present in the here and now, right now, this fleeting fragment of a moment, time to grow unity and connection into the future, right now.” Di has collaborated with Indigenous art and cultural advisor, Magpie Yerrubilgin Songman.
Artist Peter Charuk says “pastpresentfuture is one word for me. The focus of this video projection will spotlight how water is the lifeblood of the region; both historically and in a contemporary manner. Water will be the future of the region in more ways than one”.
The videos will be projected on the Southern Cross Credit Union building in Wharf St on the evening of Saturday May 27 in conjunction with the Celebrate Murwillumbah! street dinner party from 6-10pm. They will also be screened at the Murwillumbah Experimental Film Shorts on Sunday May 28. Technical support is by Crystal Grid (Byron Bay) and Di James.
