The Misfit Life of Shopping Trolleys – Debby Downes Exhibition

A photographic exhibition by Debby Downes in the Hallway Gallery
Opening Friday 23rd November 7pm -9pm

Show runs from the 21st November – 1st December2012
The Life Of Misfit Shopping Trolleys.

Have you ever seen a stray shopping trolley stranded beyond the boundaries of the local supermarket?
To the average person stray trolleys go unnoticed, semi-molded into the everyday suburban landscape of our consumer society.

Shopping trolleys are an integral part of Australia ’s economy.
It is estimated there are over 2 million trolleys across the country, one for every 11 Australians, with each one costing upwards of $100.
As well as being a significant financial cost, stray trolleys are an environmental hazard to creeks, bush land and waterways.
This first became apparent two years ago when I started photographing stray trolleys in a lighthearted attempt at humor; initially I would challenge myself to seek out obscure locations and the strangest scenarios I could find, uploading them weekly to an online album for my friends to enjoy.
Within months I had captured hundreds of images with minimal effort, revealing a disturbing truth,,,, shopping trolleys are taking over our streets, bus stops, river systems and lane-ways every single day.

None of the photos in this exhibition were staged. All shopping trolleys were photographed in situ… clearly for many their shopping days are over.
Sadly in the past two years the retail industry has spent more than $4oo Million collecting, repairing, maintaining, and replacing these trolleys.

What’s It Called Again? Exhibition

Another week, another exhibition going up at Studio 19. What’s it called? What’s it about? Which artists are exhibiting? We don’t even know!
It’s curated by Josh Wiffen so it may have some street art in it.

Opening night is Friday 12th October at 6.30pm

SHOW OPENS FROM MIDDAY ON THURSDAY 11TH TILL SATURDAY 20TH OCTOBER

what we do know is that there will be some live music by “Spectacles MCs – Y.Etti & 2000faces”

Spectacles are a lyrical electronic rock act from Sydney who have grown from a solo bedroom project to a 5-strong live band in three short years. But on the 12th of October, Spectacles’ two vocalists/MCs are leaving the drums and amp stacks at home to let samplers, synths and their staccato wordplay take centre stage.

Spectacles MCs Y.Etti and 2000faces will be dressed to impress and ready to dissect a civilisation’s failed heart, with gloves off and wits scalpel-sharp. Expect a set of fierce verses, harmonies and improvisation – all set to a sonic backdrop of raw beats cooked up on the spot.

Under the Surface

Come and join us for our next exhibition of local art. This time we are focusing on photography and all it’s glorious possibilities.

‘under the surface’
A showcase of photography based works exploring what lies beneath the surface of the Illawarra and it’s surrounds.

’The vault through which determines life or death’

The vault through which determines life or death explores site specific installation drawing dealing with the line in space and its relationship to the space that is comes to exist within. It talks about a dialogue between line as being eternal and the passage walked as being something that will become determined.
