YESTERDAYS NEWS

Well the latest bunch of artists moving in to CCAS seem very capable … of staying up all night and making a lot of noise that is. Yes Friday fright night was a long one folks but the art is fine … get it. In the MAINspace there’s the incredible circle of sound by Alex Davies  based on the game of Chinese whispers.  (I think its a game) It aint Saint Pauls but prepare to be immersed in the gallery of whispers …. . Belinda Toll’s beautiful glass vessels holding light and containing depth are the perfect partner for a major sound piece. And then there is Melbourne’s Natalie Thomas –  as Alex put it, “a phenomenon with the under 10s” – in the Cube. Nat’s been in the Sate Library of Victory devoting her day light hours to sleazy newspaper headlines and her seductive come riveting videos appear to be a huge hit with the generation who have no idea what microfiche is as well as those who can actually remember The Truth ! Alex Davies, Belinda Toll, Natalie Thomas at CCAS Gorman House until 11 August.
