Bimblebox art projects
Bimblebox: art – science – nature is a touring exhibition about the Bimblebox Nature Refuge, its environmental, social and scientific significance and an artist group’s creative response to their experience of this unique and threatened environment. The exhibition is rich, dynamic and diverse, including artworks in installation, works on paper, painting, artist books, photography, digital media and sound. Curated by Beth Jackson from a project initiated by artist Jill Sampson (Bimblebox Art Project coordinator), the exhibition also incorporates aspects of scientific and environmental research and social history of the site, together with catalogue and education kit in digital and print media.
Bimblebox 153 Birds is a unique installation of artist prints, spoken word poetry and prose plus musicians’ bird call interpretations. Inspired by the birdlife of Bimblebox Nature Refuge in Queensland’s Galilee Basin this exhibition brings together the creative contributions of over 440 artists, writers and musicians worldwide. The project has been created, coordinated and curated by Queensland artist Jill Sampson. Audio compilation and mixing is by Boyd.
The installation of Bimblebox 153 Birds is at the Gympie Regional Gallery, 9 August to 3 September, 2016.
