Hannah Raisin and Will Heathcote: Bark & Bristle
Friday 21 March – Saturday 12 April
Hannah Raisin and Will Heathcote’s exhibition Bark and Bristle playfully ponders the complex and diverse relationships between people and their surroundings. The work aims to physically explore the territory between controlled and uncontrolled environments, identifying a wealth of material in typical projections of the Australian outback. Operating both collaboratively and individually the artists will showcase a body of new work developed during recent months spent working in the broader Alice Springs region.
Hannah and Will will also be undertaking a Travelling Artist Studio Residency at Watch This Space during their exhibition dates. Hannah and Will’s project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body.

In Gallery Three, Craft 31 Flinders Lane Melbourne
Will Heathcote’s exhibition 20° S 135° E navigates and disrupts common conceptions of wilderness.
Through actions, sculptural intervention, site specific casting and photography, Heathcote aims to physically explore the territory between controlled and uncontrolled environments and to unearth a wealth of loaded material in typical projections of the outback.
20° S 135° E is the primary outcome of a broader self-directed residency program in various locations throughout regional Australia. Working from a cattle station in central Northern Territory, 20° S 135° E presents a physical engagement with a specific piece of land in Australia’s centre – mapping, moulding and casting it into an entirely new state of being.
Opening Saturday 8 March 6pm

Opening on International Women’s Day, ‘Conversation Pieces’ presents works by Australian artists Agatha Gothe-Snape, Alex Martinis Roe and Hannah Raisin and collaborative works by Catherine or Kate, Scott Ferguson (Erika Scott & Brooke Ferguson) and Courtney Coombs & Caitlin Franzmann.

Knight St Art Space Presents New Work by Will Heathcote
Almost Solid is an exhibition that presents landscape art as action, playfully drawing on visual arts’ historically rich and layered approach to this subject. The work subverts conventional conceptions of the landscape by rearticulating pre-existing forms, painting and casting them into a new state of being. This exhibition is the initial experimental outcome of a broader self-directed program of new work development within the Australian landscape. Working from a Toyota LandCruiser Will Heathcote alongside Hannah Raisin have established HotelJuliet, a mobile arts residency which has so far included various collaborations, interventions, performances and site works around the country. Partially funded by the Australia Council’s New Work Grant this project continues to provide an opportunity to expand investigations into ideas of wilderness, both real and imagined.
