Home By Craig Walsh (QLD / National) If There Was A Colour Darker Than Black I’d Wear It Southern Encounter
Do we have an artistic program waiting for you? Below are just three examples of the exclusive works premiering at Kumuwuki /big wave. Developed especially for the conference they will radiate moments of creative brilliance and important provocations about our understanding of regional communities and artists.
Constructed and developed between 2009 and 2011 during his epic and ground breaking Digital Odyssey, Craig Walsh's Home is a plaintive and stirring projected paean of what ‘home’ means to us.
From Mackay to Murray Bridge via Alice Springs video footage of locals discussing their views of home are projected large onto found spaces and places. These projected works takes our fondest notions of place into a proportion akin to Walsh’s Odyssey itself.
Kumuwuki [big wave] is pleased to present these works for the first time especially edited for locations in and around Goolwa.
Home is co-presented with assistance of Museum Of Contemporary of Art and Craig Walsh’s Digital Odessey

Ado is a celebrated young man with talent and choice who, according to his family and friends, is at the pinnacle of his potential. So what's happened and where has he gone?
Charge your mobile, friend Ado on facebook and travel on a bus to visit places where he lives and plays, interacting with him along the way. Will you get to meet and intercept him or will he continually stay just out of reach?
The real world of a country town is dubbed, daubed and overlaid with the symbols, images and memes that give you, the audience, clues to Ado, his life, associations and inner most thoughts.
"Black" is steeped in ambiguity and fluidity of time delivering you information from the past, present and future. Operatic in scale and emotion this new immersive semi - site specific performance installation work is imaginatively visceral and wholly affecting.
"If There Was A Colour Darker Than Black I'd Wear It" is proudly supported by Country Arts SA through its Performance Development program and has been made possible through the financial assistance of the Australia's Council Theatre Board and Arts SA's Major Festival Commission Funding Program
The second sentence "dubbed, daubed" etc might be good to swap with the third, as I think its a bit easier to make sense of what it is at the start?

Ranging from the odd, spectacular and the sublime Southern Encounter is a project embracing art, community and landscape in its broadest forms.
Southern Encounter is a series of site specific performances, installations and collaborations between artists, visiting audiences & the local communities on a chartered train moving through the landscape on South Australia’s oldest rail route.
Utilising old media/new media & the interdisciplinary arts of sound practices ‘Southern Encounter’ celebrates community, heritage and landscape in the most inventive way.
Southern Encounter is the result of artist residencies and community workshops that will have taken place over a 6 month period culminating in this unique 4 hour experience of 'happenings' presented on a train journey, & various stops on a return trip from Victor Harbour to Strathalbyn.
"Southern Encounter" is proudly supported by Country Arts SA through its Performance Development program and has been made possible through the financial assistance of the Australia’s Council’s Music Board and Arts SA’s Independent Makers and Producers Fund.
