Exhibition:

"Skin and Bones: Bus '07 Fashion and Costume Show"

Curated by: Patrick O’Brien

Opening: Tuesday 27 February, 6-8pm
Dates: 27 February-17 March 2007

Featuring: Rebecca Joseph, Jason Hood, Dylan Martorell, Pegs Marlowe, Annie Wu, Josh Petherick, Nathan Gray, Isobel Knowles, Emily Kane, Chris Hill , Oliver Hextall, Dion Narnia, Christopher Schueller, Alison Bolger, Monica Syrette, Kym Maxwell, Dell Stewart and Louise Conroy.

Supporting sound art, installations, painting, photography, design and music, Bus now broaches new ground with an exhibition of costume pieces inspired by curator Pat O’Brien’s commitment to performance.

Coinciding with LMFF but of a very different ilk, Skin and Bones speaks to the exhibitionist in all of us. Venture up the rickety staircase and discover a menagerie of creatures mostly constructed from cheap and recycled materials. There’s the head of a great white owl, a re-interpretation of the ubiquitous Sydney Road wolf t-shirt, a furry head piece that Matthew Barney would approve of and a giant Pagan god looming from the rafters that recalls The Wicker Man.

With 18 contributing artists who range from professional costumiers to members of Hi God People, Skin and Bones exists in the peripheral space between sleeping and waking, between the corporeal and the cerebral and will surely set chins wagging, bodies moving and minds racing.
