3 August – 1 September, 2019
Project DUPLEX is focused on the uncanny parallels between hyper normal suburban environments on opposing sides of Australia. The Satellite Place is a collection of evolving live performances; micro rituals integrating sculpture, installation and direct audience participation. The works have been developed during residencies at the Midland Junction Arts Centre in Perth, WA and THE WALLS in Miami, QLD.
ADRIENNE KENAFAKE is a multi-disciplinary artist based on Queensland’s Gold Coast. Working across the mediums of sculpture, performance, installation and video she explores ideas of paranormality, energy and discontent within the context of the suburban landscape. The anthropological observation of suburban Australia persists as a common thread within her practice. In 2014 she exhibited her first solo show, Gutter Gold: Something from Nothing at the Tweed Regional Gallery in Murwillumbah, NSW, and has continued to exhibit locally in South-East Queensland including in 2015 at Swell Sculpture Festival and in Young Heroines at Maverick Art Space, Coolangatta, and in 2017. In 2019 Adrienne undertook a residencies at House Conspiracy in Brisbane’s West End and at Midland Junction Art Centre in Western Australia.
DUPLEX was supported by the Regional Arts Development Fund. The Regional Arts Development Fund is a partnership between the Queensland Government and the City of Gold Coast Council to support local arts and culture in regional Queensland.
