After a hectic week, The Mapping Room is now officially launched.
It is classified as part of the new ‘live art’ section of the Melbourne Fringe programme, which tends to encompass programmes which involve art that moves into real world settings, art that may well have fallen through the cracks in previous years.
The Mapping Room features both established and emerging artists including Analogue Art Map, Bettybooke, Well theatre, Emma Rochester, Kelly Ryall, and Buzzcuts writers Lin and myself.
In our section of the gallery Head Quarters (on the corner of Westgarth and High Street in Northcote), you will find a massive array of poems and love letters filling message jars, envelopes and bottles, some of which have been planted around the city for you to find. Hopefully the process of looking for the jars, and realising that they are out there waiting for you will get you thinking a little more about the surroundings we all take for granted in our daily lives.
The first clue for jar 1 out in the city is : “One jar is a columnist on Elizabeth Street’. Visual clues will be uploaded soon here and more written clues will follow.
Gracee 🙂 xoxoxo
