Green Room, Caitlin Franzmann: The Foundry says
The IMA is pleased to present an ambitious new installation, The Foundry, with visuals by Caitlin Franzmann and sound composed by Dale Gorfinkel from recordings made with Ross Manning as part of our Green Room program. The project will open at 5pm on Saturday, 28 January, in the shopfront space of the Judith Wright Centre, and run until 11 February.

The installation draws imagery from historical artefacts and materials uncovered at The Foundry, a 19th century warehouse located in the residential slopes of Red Hill, Brisbane. The studio is where The Human Factor fibreglass sculptures commissioned for world expo 88 were produced. From drovers to lifeguards to street performers, the sculptures were intended to convey a sense of life in Australia. Using the now decaying sculptures, audio recordings of live performances and video footage and field recordings from the site, the three artists reveal a journey through imagination, collective memory and unlearning of dominant histories.

We look forward to seeing you at our first event for 2017!
