  Elizabeth Rankin    Show,Tell  continues Elizabeth Rankin’s interest in visual rhetoric and the power of imagery to narrate a story.  Rankin’s abiding concern has been dark tales of the uncanny that emerge from Australian society. In this exhibition she explores the strange incident of the Pyjama Girl found dead and abandoned in Albury in 1934 wearing yellow silk pyjamas. The face was so profoundly disfigured that she could not be identified. Her body was therefore preserved and displayed at Sydney University in the hope of identifying her. She was on show. Later the mystery became an attraction at the Royal Easter Show along with other marvels such as May, the Fat Lady and the contortionists. Farm animals were displayed and judged and sheep dogs rounded sheep. Everyone bought show bags. The Pyjama Girl became another display.  In the real world the husband was eventually charged and found guilty of the murder but his sentence was light. Linda Agostini (as she was claimed to be) had been a good time girl with a drinking problem. What was a man to do

 SALT & SAND  Anthony Ponzo's work Salt and Sand is a collection of photographic works featuring a series of aerial shots taken from fixed-wing aircraft in Geraldton & Shark Bay Western Australia and Lake Tekapo New Zealand.  Salt and Sand is a collection of photographic work by Sydney photographer Anthony Ponzo and features a series of aerial works shot from privately chartered fixed-wing aircraft in Geralton and Shark Bay Western Australia and Lake Tekapo New Zealand. The exhibition is being held as part of the Head On Photo Festival 2018. In its 9th year, it is regarded as the country's largest photographic festival and the second largest in the world. The aerial images are abstract in nature and challenge the viewer’s perception of reality.  Capturing mother nature at her most impressively surreal self, ranging from the vascular lakes winding their way through Lake Tekapo in NewZealand’s South Island to the contrasting starkness of the salt lakes of Geraldton and Shark Bay in far Western Australia. The collection invokes a different kind of visual literacy in the viewer and reminds us just how beautiful this planet we call home truly is.

ORDER AND SPACE

The fundamental element of this comos is space . . . Its nature is emptiness and because it is empty it can contain and embrace everything. . . Space is the precondition of all that exists . . .[1]

Pattern has never been the exclusive position of any one field of human activity; order as ‘pattern’ seems to have a universal meaning.[2]

INTRODUCTION

This exhibition brings together the work of Timothy Corne and Annelies Jahn.  The impetus for the paring of these artists came about through mutual admiration for one another’s art practice.  Over the past four years Annelies and Tim have come to know each other and their respective work.  Order and the process of understanding and knowing the world around them, is at the centre of each artists’ investigation.  Material and spatial relationships are revealed within their work and explore subtle nuances, a product of each artists individual meditative process.  The common ground found in the art practice of each, and a shared appreciation for a minimalist aesthetic, led the works to naturally coalesce.  This exhibition and associated catalogue essays are the result of an ongoing dialogue between the two artists.
