Statement: Elastics / Borracha / Elástico witnesses Timor Leste’s reconstruction through the eyes of four artists (two Timorese, two Australian) who travelled to eleven of the thirteen districts in a mobile residency in late 2012. The artists recorded everyday life and the inspirational work of women weavers and traditional builders whose resilient cultural upkeep subversively aided the forty-year liberation struggle. Their innovative work gives spirit and form to the challenges of rebuilding in a new democracy and one of the world’s poorest countries.

 

The title is taken from the universal collaborative children’s jumping game of Elastics / Borracha / Elástico and refers in English, Tetum and Portuguese to the ground-up rebuilding from scorched earth. It also refers to the zigzagging historical records, contesting geo-political points of view and the different generational experiences of the brutal four decades following Portugal’s decolonisation of Timor Leste. Many truths have been told; many will remain untold.

Australian Studies Print Set: Fiona Macdonald and Spiros Panigirakis, 2014.
Printed by Negative Press, Melbourne.

Australian Studies is a collaborative project that continues the turn to publication in the work of Fiona Macdonald and Spiros Panigirakis. The limited edition publication Australian Studies is the first of a series that reconsiders the histories and signatures of art practice in Australia since 1977. The Cross Art Projects is used as a site for the layout of this unique publication. The print set and the publication take, as a point of emphasis, Davila’s painting, Stupid as a Painter, which was seized by police on grounds of obscenity at the 4th Biennale of Sydney, Vision in Disbelief, from the Art Gallery of New South Wales in 1982.
 The circumstances that surround censorship and related questions of power and visibility inform the publication, print set and the exhibition. The events of 1982 have a direct bearing on subsequent suppression actions.
