Exhibited at the Substation gallery in Newport as part of Vantage Point (curated by Will Foster), Yallourn (Amendment) Act, 2013 researches the site of one of Australia’s largest open cut coal mines, 153km southeast of the Substation at Yallourn.
The work explores the relationship between bureaucracy, power, restriction and community, looking at both the history of the site and Yallourn today.
On Sunday 29th of September, a BBQ as part of this work took place outside the Substation, where the BBQ from Gallery 6 was moved outside by gallery visitors, brick by brick, and reassembled to form a functioning BBQ off which we enjoyed lunch and discussed the exhibition.
