Impressions of Australian Mining Country

Posted: 18/12/2011 5:00:00 AM by Mining Oil and Gas Jobs
Filed under: Australian-Life


If you’re looking for something to do during the school holidays, especially something suitable for a family outing, escape to the cool confines of the FORM gallery on Murray Street in Perth. Belgian artist ROA is exhibiting artwork inspired by his trip to mining country in Western Australia.



The exhibition is described on the FORM website like this:

“In the spring of 2011, ROA found himself in the remote Pilbara region of North Western Australia. Travelling through remote terrain accessible only via four-wheel-drive or on foot, deep in Ngarluma country, ROA was hosted by Ngarluma Aboriginal elders and shown places known only to the locals. This is a place of paradoxes, where the natural beauty of the land intersects with the flotsam and jetsam of human habitation - disused water tanks, abandoned houses, pieces of car and machinery. Where life and death overlap. Where cultures and histories constantly cross paths. Where urban art meets the outback.”

The exhibition runs through 13 January 2012 but the gallery closed December 24 – January 2, 2012. If you can’t get to Perth, check out ROA’s street art in Fremantle. You’ll find it walking off the wall in the laneway between the Fremantle Markets and the Old Shanghai food court.



If you’ve been to the exhibit already, what did you think?
