Arting Around

This afternoon and evening proved to be most creative! Visited Polymorph and hung out with BodModBoy and worked through new Aug HF show ideas, contacted an assortment of folk re the nitty gritty of it all, went to costume fitting for ArtSpace show, and found out about a couple of new art shows coming up: Naked Canvas, some sort of body modification installation (??? don't have many details yet), Monday 20th August from 4-7pm at The RoundHouse, UNSW and Dead Still, some sort of goth-esque affair with a whole pile of artists exhibiting at New View Gallery (277 Australia St Newtown) 6-8pm, Thursday 30th August. Oh, and I have maybe found a conference or two to go to in Austria that might get me funding to get OS! Just have to get my funding application all signed off and submitted by Friday, whilst working fulltime. Will be working at least 7 hours a day for next two weeks, which will make time management for shows a bit tricky, but nice to a) get money and b) be busy, as the more I have to do the more I get done (if you know what I mean).

And of course, last night was Orlan. Not sure if the fact that I nodded off in the first half was more a reflection of the talk or my state of exhaustion, or both? Left feeling a little non-thrilled, like I could have just read a bloody book on her- nothing new or exciting really. Not bad, not borning as such, just... old? Jaded? Routine? Banal? Hmmm.
