Flours for my baby… A night of wonder and excitement featuring Dumaresq, Les Nointers, Edward Guglielmino and special guests Random Acts of Weirdness.

When do you give your loved one flours?

Lune River
Forming in nipaluna / Hobart, Lune River are a Rock ’n’ Roll group in spirit. Through dreamy songwriting that sets the dials for the sun, their music exhales space hooks and melody – yet with good feels and weight when it counts. Their affinity with adventurous psych-rock jams and organic songwriting also gives them a rare duality that reflects their love for the 60s. You can expect to hear plenty more of Lune River over the coming waves of time.

Jethro Pickett is a Tasmanian songwriter and producer who’s gearing up for a new release this year with a new sound. His last release was put out by Phill Calvert’s (The Birthday Party) Behind The Beat Records and they’re on board for the next one too. Jethro has toured with various pop/rock bands all over the world and has a big pool to delve into and inspire from. Expect some cosmic pop from this prince of freak folk.

Celeste Evelyn is an artist/singer-songwriter born from the wild and fertile coastal soil of lutruwita/Tasmania, honing an original sound that borrows from roots, soul, folk and alt-rock, yet strays into realms of a genre undefinable. An earth-spun songstress with provoking lyrics, emotive melodies, and a focus on the depth and colour available to our human experience that can be found through rhythm and melody.


Photo: Claire Warren

Singer-songwriter Cathy Diver writes intimate alt-country and folk songs cast tender vignettes, shifting and sunburnt.  Based between lutruwita/Tasmania and Ngunnawal Country, she has toured significantly and supported the likes of Julia Jacklin, Didirri, Tim Rogers and Carla Geneve, as well as co-forming indie label, Undine Records, in 2020.

Wona Bae and Charlie Lawler’s Micro Macro explores ideas of causality as they relate to the self regulating balance between entities. It represents Wona Bae and Charlie Lawler’s first presentation in Tasmania. Interested in the ritual of the everyday experience, their practice probes the periphery of the natural and cultural landscape. For Micro Macro Bae and Lawler look at the fascinating life of Lichen, its unique symbiotic relationship and role as a bio indicator in our environment. In this exhibition the pair present a series of paintings and installation works characterised through abstraction, distortion and repetition. Bae and Lawler emphasise structure and material, using charcoal, ash, synthetic polymers to create highly textured surfaces. Bae and Lawler draw on references from the microcosmic world of lichen, to create works that take on a macrocosmic state.

배원아 + 찰리 롤러
Micro Macro 는 개체 간의 자기 조절 균형과 관련하여 인과 관계의 아이디어를 탐구하는 배원아와 찰 리 로우러 작가의 태즈메이니아에서의 첫 전시회입니다. 그들은 일상 경험의 의례에 관심을 갖고 자연 과 문화 경관의 주변부를 탐구하고 실험한다. Micro Macro 전시에서 Bae와 Lawler는 Lichen의 놀라 운 삶, 독특한 공생 관계 및 환경에서 생물학적 지표로서의 역할을 살펴본다. 이번 전시에서 두 사람은 추상화, 왜곡, 반복을 특징으로 하는 일련의 회화와 설치 작업을 선보인다. Bae and Lawler는 구조와 재료를 강조하여 목탄, 재, 합성 폴리머를 사용하여 높은 질감을 만들어낸다. Bae와 Lawler는 이끼의 소우주 세계에서 참고 자료를 활용하여 거시적 상태를 취하는 조각 표면을 보여준다.

Wona Bae (South Korea) and Charlie Lawler (Australia) are collaborative artists based in Australia, known internationally for their installations and sculpture that navigate visceral and symbiotic human relationships with nature. 

Their multifarious practice includes sculpture, relief, sound, photography, and video. Drawing on patterns and systems from the world around them, their unique immersive installations experiment with materiality and technology, tapping into the primitive need to find connection with the natural world. 

Grounded in observation and documentation of the world around them, their practice explores human experience in both natural landscapes and the built environment. Characterised through abstraction, distortion and repetition their work plays spatially with ideas relating to perspective and escapism.

Bae and Lawler have held solo exhibitions at Heide Museum of Modern Art, Melbourne (2019/20); Backwoods Gallery, Melbourne (2022 and 2019); See You Soon Gallery, Tokyo (2017); and Koskela Gallery, Sydney (2016). They were commissioned to create a major new installation for The National at the Art Gallery of New South Wales (2021), and have undertaken other major installations throughout Australia, South Korea, Japan, Spain and the UK. Bae and Lawler have won the 2019 Yering Galley Award and the 2018 Yarra Valley Arts/ RACV Award. They have undertaken residencies at Artspace, Sydney (2021), Gregans Retreat, Lisdillon, Tasmania (2020), and Onyang Folk Museum, South Korea (2022).

He’s since taken the island state by storm with his soulful vocals, smooth musicianship and thoughtful song writing. Jay has channelled his unique blend of Soul, Blues, Folk and Funk all around lutruwita/Tasmania – from busking in the street to performing on stages at Falls Festival, A Festival Called Panama, DARK MOFO, Party in the Paddock and many more.Spending the last few years collaborating with other musicians, songwriters and producers, Jay has carefully pieced together his first E.P titled, ‘Blue Skies’. In lead up to the release of this debut, Jay is launching a single called ‘WATWIFFY’ on the 22nd of October. Jay Jarome Band along with Jeqa and Karai will be putting on a show at The Founders Room to celebrate the artist’s first release since 2019.
