Ballina’s latest Art at the Airport showcase
VISITORS to the Ballina Byron Gateway Airport are set for an interactive art experience during the next two months, with the latest showcase of the Art at the Airport featuring works by local multi-media artist, Duke Albada.
You Are Here is an artistic video chronicle of a road trip researching the artist's connection to country.
Commenced with a physical journey, the artwork exposes Duke's deep affection and concerns about country and culture.
This is evident through an intimate survey of work featuring a macro view of the natural world.
All imagery was gathered during a three week road trip, journeying through an extensive region in the mid-east area of Australia, covering vastly different environments.
Exhibited at the airport, the work highlights the disparate connections between air travel and connection to land.
You Are Here will be on display from today until Wednesday March 2.
The launch event will be held at the Ballina Byron Gateway Airport on Thursday January 14 6pm-8pm.
Light refreshments and wine will be served.
