Wastelands was a photomedia exhibition held at the Belconnen Gallery in Belconnen Community Centre from 14th 24th Nov, 2006 and then during December as well.
Jo Bowen, Executive Director of Belconnen Community Service, opened the exhibition at 3pm on Wednesday 15th Nov.
"Wasteland aims to provide a catalyst for artists and communities as individuals and groups to express their relationship to the environment including and between Western Sydney and the ACT. This stretch of landscape is viewed as a space to be traversed between two destinations - a wasteland to pass through. Lines of beauty and despair are sped past, the natural and built positive space blurring into negative space. Wasteland is a project of the MV Network, a federation of regional arts facilities and presenters bonded by the M5 motorway, stretching from the Casula Powerhouse in Western Sydney through Campbelltown and the Southern Tablelands to Canberra and Queanbeyan. The Wasteland exhibition at Belconnen is the first stage in a multi phase project that will see each of the members interpret the Wasteland theme, culminating in a major exhibition at the Casula Powerhouse in 2007.
10 amazingly diverse artists have created the works for this exhibition at Belconnen Gallery: Nasser Palangi, Kathleen Fisher, Barbie Robinson, Jennifer Phillips, Sheila Keunen, Ian Haynes, Jennifer Martiniello, Susan Henderson, Geri Johnstone, and Luisa Abello. The curator is Anni Doyle Wawrzynczak" (Comments by Anni Doyle Wawrzynczak November 2006).
