BIG THOUGHTS: Fraserstudio residency artists have big ideas on
hypothetical public art works for the FRASER BROADWAY site
Queen Street Studio is a member-based, non-profit organisation that
provides studio space run by artists for artists.
The organisation manages FraserStudios; a new multi-disciplinary
art space for Fraser’s Property located on Kensington Street
adjacent to the FRASER BROADWAY development.
In 2008 Fraser’s Property introduced a new initiative to make
creative use of otherwise vacant warehouse space in the old Kent
Brewery development site on Broadway.
From September 2008, three warehouses at 10-14 Kensington Street,
Chippendale have been temporarily transformed into a
multidisciplinary art space, managed and produced by
Queen Street Studio.
The main aim of the project is to encourage artistic development
and exchange by providing free workspace and subsidised rehearsal
space to both the visual and performing arts community in Sydney.
FraserStudios also aims to add to the cultural life of Chippendale
with an emphasis on local community development and engagement
through a diversity of art form practises and skill development
BIG THOUGHTS: is an exhibition of hypothetical public art works by
selected Sydney based artists who have been awarded a Fraserstudio
Projects residency overt the past year and a half.
They have been asked to create a ‘blue sky’ idea for a public
art work which will be exhibited at MOP projects in January – no
limits, no boundaries, no DA, no restrictions. A ‘pie in the
sky’ idea that will take the form of illustrations and sketches of
preparatory visions of much larger projects.
This exhibition has been produced by Queen street studio who manage
the Fraserstudio Project Residency Program
Queen Street Studio would like to thank the generous assistance of
Jennifer Turpin who has been appointed the Public Art Consultant
for the FRASER BROADWAY site.
Interested artists who would like to enquire about residencies at
FraserStudio Projects please contact Pete Volich
EXECUTION & THE SHADOW
Execution & The Shadow is about a self induced prison. It's about the walls we place around ourselves, consciously and unconsciously. When we place these walls around ourselves, we dream for an escape, unconscious all along that we were the architects of our self induced prison. We forget that we can create and deconstruct. Execution & The Shadow is about remaining within these walls, living in an endless repetitive cycle, and never breaking down the structure.
