The doll redefined

Baby doll image recoloured

Evocative and playful figurative forms

Curated by Annabelle Collett

This group exhibition is curated by South Australian visual arts dynamo Annabelle Collect and features artworks by more than thirty artists who are based in the City of Tea Tree Gully, metropolitan Adelaide, regional South Australia and interstate.

This exhibition explores the doll as a representation of the human figure, a cultural symbol or a curious object with an interesting story or tradition behind it. Over the years artists have turned to the doll as a medium of creative expression and they have often pushed the limits of doll design.

For The Doll Redefined some artists have produced new creepy or cuddly dolls. While others have transformed old dolls or assembled discarded doll components to create unconventional artworks that will inspire, delight or even perplex gallery audiences.

Artists in The Doll Redefined are Angela Bannon, Caitlin Bowe, Catherine Buddle,
Gary Campbell, Olga Cironis, Deb Drake, Melissa Gillespie, Tom Harris, Lynn Elzinga Henry, Karina Eames, Tash Evele, Melissa Gillespie, Leah Grace, Annabel Hume, Russell Leonard, Susie McMahon, Alison Main, Hanna Mancini, Maggie Moy, Samuel Mulcahy, Eija Murch-Lempinen, Helen Petersen, Vesna Petiq, Jenny Ramos, Koruna Schmidt Mumm, Jane Siddall, Jane Skeer, Ewa Skoczynska, Deb Sleeman, Trevor Smith, Niki Sperou, Wendy Springhall, Sarah Tickle, Kerry Youde and Annabelle Collett.

The Doll Redefined will be launched at Gallery 1855 on Sunday 15 April from 2-5pm and will be open to the public from Wednesday 18 April until Saturday 26 May 2018.

Bringing issues to life through art

Under The Weather
Images of climate change from the streets

Exhibition duration:  Ongoing

The photographs on display at Surrey Downs Community Centre show the risks posed by climate change through the lens of people experiencing homelessness.

The 12 photographs were produced as part of the Under the Weather project, a series of workshops and larger exhibition presented last May by Hutt Street Centre in the City of Adelaide.  

The participants from Hutt St Centre’s Pathways to Education and Aged City Living programs were provided with cameras and taught the skills to photograph their immediate environment and their everyday experiences of rain, wind, storms and heat. They produced a wide range of images that revealed how the changing weather patterns are impacting on the homeless.

We hope this smaller exhibition at our community centre will encourage thoughtful conversations about climate change and a deeper awareness of living rough in a changing climate. 

This exhibition was facilitated by the City of Tea Tree Gully through Gallery 1855. These 12 photographs are a part of the Under The Weather project. It was supported by The University of Central Queensland and the National Climate Change Adaptation Research Facility’s (NCCARF) Vulnerable Communities Network, who all worked in collaboration with Hutt St Centre.

Gallery 1855 and Surrey Downs Community Centre would like to thank Danielle Every, Senior Research Fellow, The Appleton Institute, CQ University, Adelaide and Hutt St Centre for the loan of these 12 poignant images.

The Surrey Downs Community Centre is located at 6 Zanoni Cres, Surrey Downs SA 5126.
