Fibro Coast – University of Sunshine Coast June 2014

Judy Barrass -Australian BuildersAfter a successful showing at Gold Coast Arts Centre Fibro Coast exhibition will open in a new format at University of Sunshine Coast Gallery on June 12th   presenting  material from local private and public collections, artworks, architectural drawings, contemporary and historic photographs, ephemera, objects, and oral histories documentaries.  There is, in short, something for everyone. More information can be found on the Gallery website or at BlueSkyView.

My work for Fibro Coast includes video and a series of small, evocative,  paper structures reminiscent of reliquary boxes.

In wandering around my neighbourhood of Noosa photographing fibro houses for the project I was very aware that we are fast losing this part of our heritage. Many of the houses I photographed were for sale, not as houses but as development sites. Sometimes all we have left is piecemeal, blurred images, small fragments of the past. I have collected some of these fragments and boxed them as precious objects might be housed in a reliquary box, a tiny shrine to the past.

Here a snapshot of some of my works shown in the Gold Coast portion of the exhibition. Some of these will also be shown on the Sunshine Coast

    This also applies to any other ventilation in the house that can provide an entry point to
    these animals. World Wildlife Fund (WWF) has an interactive quiz for kids on their website.
    These tips should help you get over the initial hump.

    Epoxy has proved itself to be a wonderful invention. No one can deny that reverse engineering stands to benefit from the technology brought about
    by the portable measuring tools like the Faro Arm.
    But what good is sailing without food that appeals to the palate.
