8th-28th July 2023,
Immersive Opening Weekend:
Saturday, July 8, 6-8pm, and
Sunday, July 9, 12-4pm
In July 2023 The Mill Adelaide presented Make|Shift, an immersive and experimental exhibition of projection art as part of Illuminate Adelaide.
The exhibition showcased the results of a series of experimental creative development workshops run with a select group of artists through a process of mentorship and support. It featured digital image and projection based work by selected South Australian multidisciplinary artists Ray Harris, Sarah Neville, Liam Somerville, Inneke Taal and Tanya Voges.
A ticketed Artist forum was held as part of the opening weekend, allowing attendees to join members of the artistic team to talk about the exhibition, the meaning behind the artworks, as well as to discuss their processes and practices and the experience of working collaboratively to make this exhibition a reality. The forum was also live-streamed and live-captioned for those that wished to attend virtually. It was chaired by Make|Shift Artistic and Curatorial Facilitator Margie Medlin and The Mill CEO/Artistic Director Katrina Lazaroff.
Margie Medlin is an interdisciplinary artist, director international teacher and experienced mentor.
Artistic and technical mentorship were provided by illuminart’s Cindi Drennan and visual musician and multimedia artist Tim Gruchy, with technical assistance and rigging support from Zero Shaw and Sam Chamberlain. Outcomes included the artists’ creative enhancement and articulation through technical understanding and the ability to apply the right tools to specific spaces. The intensive workshops also included advice on project direction and career development.
The Make|Shift exhibition remained open for viewing across The Mill’s Exhibition Space and Showcase galleries, The Breakout and outdoor spaces for the month of July 2023.
Where: The Mill Exhibition Space, 154 Angas St, Kaurna Yarta
About the Artists:
Inneke Taal’s sculptural practice uses multimedia installation and performative practices as a way of considering subtle embodied experiences. Her work uses a range of media, including found objects, moving image, text and sound.
Ray Harris explores psychological complexities and struggles of the self using video, performance and installation. She also works as a curator, advocate and initiator of projects and studios.
Sarah Neville is a choreographer, scenario designer and researcher based on Kaurna Yarta. Sarah’s art uses interdisciplinary practices to inform her multi-platform processes and production outcomes.
Tanya Voges is an interdisciplinary artist who brings her experience in movement, dance, drawing, community engagement and dance film-making to make multimedia performance works, live dance pieces and dance for screen.
Liam Somerville is the creative mind behind @capitalwastepictures, where he works as a video artist and cinematographer to make music videos, video installations, feature films, documentaries, television commercials and more. He brings glitchy goodness to this exhibition.
