“Time past and time future
What might have been and what has been
Point to one end, which is always present.”
        T.S. Elliot, Four Quartets

–––––
the place between frames bodily actions as vessels for processing experiences, memories, material changes, physical space and traumas. The performances are the betweenness of what has occurred and what might occur; they are the now that is inextricably linked to the infinite possibilities of reading the past and considering the future. Performance outcomes are iterations of each artists ongoing process of making, but so too are they indications of the now of the artists work.

–––––
the place between is situated alongside the concurrent exhibition This is a Product of Self-care by A. Bruce. Each of the artists involved have practices with themes or methods that are also present in Bruce’s work.

Lukas Penney and KANARY
Having met in Japan last year, the two are temporarily together again in Naarm, working on their first collaboration. This new, experimental work brings together the movement of dance and Butoh trained Lukas (Melb) and the sound of DJ KANARY (Tokyo) who has swapped vinyls for keys. Working intuitively together in improvised movement and sound, this new work is an exercise in trust; without a script, the two performers balance their own feelings, emotions and impulses with the rhythm, pace and offerings of the other.

TALLULAH ROSE
                        I do the work

                and I am the work

Tallulah Rose is a dance-based performance artist born in Auckland (NZ) currently living and working in Sydney (Aus). She has performed in various group shows in Sydney, as well as organised and curated outsider-art events. Her work is a gentle anarchy that looks to subvert patriarchal and capitalistic modes of communication, art making, and how we view the body and femininity.
Her present practice looks to channel emotions through the physical body, locating painful and sticky spaces that hold trauma, and work to move it through and out. Ultimately the dance becomes an act of resistance, reclamation, and self-care. The body is where art and life begin; the mind and body are intricately linked in a feedback loop of communication, thus as the body moves, it becomes the physicalisation of the psyche.

DANIEL R MARKS
Daniel R Marks is a trans-disciplinary conceptual artist based in Melbourne. Their work explores the expansion and dissolution of bodily singularity within relational structures: this is materialised in experimental processes which manipulate the distinction between subject and object, forming fragmented narratives of slippage and redistribution. They are currently completing their Honours year in Fine Art at RMIT and have shown solo exhibitions at Brunswick Street Gallery, Alternating Current Art Space and First Site, as well as performing for one-night events at Testing Grounds and One Year.
