Beach to Birrabeen

An art and science collaboration. 

The exhibition Beach to Birrabeen is the visual outcome of a collaboration between the RATS (Regional artists and Tutors) from the Fraser Coast and scientists from the FIDO (Fraser Island Defenders Organisation) founded by John Sinclair AO at Dilli Village on K'gari (Fraser Island) in December 2016.

The marriage between scientists and creative artists is a compelling relationship that if successful can raise awareness of the uniqueness of this World Heritage listed Great Sandy Island.

The five artists involved: Gina Davey, Kelli McGregor, Val Mcintosh, David Probyn and Jo Williams all hope to raise awareness of our own unique backyards to a new urban audience that may never experience this island other than from a Tourism or click bait perspective:
Four wheel drive runs over Japanese tourist sunbaking on Fraser Island.
Dingo attacks boy.

Our objective is to express in a visual way through diverse mediums our personal views: of the wonder of the natural environment, the scientists involved in trying to save this environment, the distortion of humans in the landscape to the plight of the iconic dingoes.

As with most exhibitions, the artists have a vision of what the show will look like and the audience it will attract.

With this exhibition Beach to Birrabeen if one person has a change in perception from an image we have created we will consider the show a success. This is the drum we bang, the banners we wave, our protest march. It is the voice we have been given to do 'our bit' for the miracle of the universe-our earth. We hope you linger.

Thank You.

Opening : Saturday 11 November, 12:00pm.
