RE:Location Exhibition

Artworks evolving from the RE:Location Project

Lyne Marshall’s Re:Location is being exhibited at BAROSSA REGIONAL GALLERY in South Australia from the 5th September to 23rd October.  It will be supported in Gallery Two by unframed works from a series titled Colours of My Land. Artworks from RE:Location can be viewed in the slideshows below the exhibition description.

During March 2017 RE:Location was shown at Manning Regional Gallery in Taree NSW and from 19th August to 16th October 2017 it was exhibited at Ipswich Art Gallery, in Queenland.

The RE:Location Project began with an overseas journey to Ireland, Scotland and England in 2015 to visit the lands of the artist’s ancestors who emigrated to Australia in the 1880s. Lyne Marshall placed ten little ‘Art Pods’ containing her  own artworks into the places they had lived before migrating to Australia, and this emotional experience triggered the ideas and content for this exhibition.

The artwork evolved into three parts

SCULPTURES of wood, resin and metal
ACRYLIC PAINTINGS on canvas and synthetic paper

Barossa Regional Gallery has its own interactive Art Pods. Find information on them here.

‘The six seabird images, each a LED print of three on metal,  were created from photographs taken in Dover in the UK, and represent the migration of my ancestors. The sculptures, made from metal found in outback Australian regions, allude to the early settlements and the landscape paintings refer to the legacy of this island continent that I to call home. They represent the ‘now’, and the reason I chose to paint the essence of the Australian landscape’.

Other  important aspects of this  exhibition include a video by Peter Marshall, documenting the journey through time, and a new book titled Relocation as Inspiration: Creating from Diverse Landscapes, available in the gallery shop.  An interactive element involves the positioning of Art Pods in the local outdoor environment, to be found by gallery visitors.

ART PODS are located by GPS co-ordinates, and a tip on finding them will be  listed here and also inside the Re:Location brochure available in the gallery. This will occur next during the Barossa Regional Gallery exhibition in September and October 2018..
