With the support of ArtsNSW The Anglican and General Trusts have partnered with Auburn City Council, Sydney Olympic Park Authority and The GroundSwell Project to create the third annual Rookwood Sculpture Walk.
Hidden is an on-site sculpture exhibition revealing artists’ responses to Rookwood, the largest cemetery in the Southern Hemisphere. Rookwood is a place rich in heritage, history and culture, its beauty and splendour distinctive. With such a thought provoking subject matter, Hidden invites
audiences to explore the iconic site whilst admiring the 36 evocative works that feature amongst the graves.
This year’s exhibition will also feature a new media work in the All Souls Chapel and an extensive public program that includes a writer’s workshop, cemetery tours, dusk ceremony and a high school education program.
For the first time since the exhibition started, a $5,000 non-acquisitive award has been given to one of the artists whose work is exhibited in the outdoor sculpture exhibition. Congratulations to Michael Neddham for his ‘haunting’ sculpture!
On top of the $5,000 award, Auburn City Council will have offered Benedict Ernst a one-month residency at the Peacock Gallery and Auburn Arts Studio at no cost.
Sponsored by The GroundSwell Project, this years exhibition also features a $500.00 People’s Choice Award. Go to http://rookwoodcemetery.com.au/hidden/hidden-peoples-choice-vote.html to cast your vote!

Ravel – 1st Floor Macquarie Hotel
42 Wentworth Ave, Sydney
Sydney’s Sophie Hutchings made a lot of best-of lists in 2010 for her exquisite debut Becalmed – the biggest coup being a top 5 spot on music bible MOJO Magazine’s lists of best releases for the year. The pianist returns to Raval after performing over two nights there in October with a full band that includes her brother Jamie Hutchings.
Special guests on the night will be Raven, otherwise known as cellist Peter Hollo for FourPlay performing solo, and in a rare appearance, jazz legend Tony Gorman (Clarion Fracture Zone) begins what is sure to be a fabulous night of beautiful music.
**Get tickets here! Limited capacity (very limited, in fact) so get in quick!**

Take a trip down the eternal dance floor sculpted by harbour city natives Holy Balm. You’ll find it difficult not to cut a rug as this self proclaimed psychedelic, dance, jam, band pull us audience types down onto their perpetual thudding planet. Wavering and woozy synths cut in and out of the mirror balls in our minds, while a strutting drum machine metrically thumps out, syncing with the slightly clanging percussion. Out of th…is world, full tilt into the night with Holy Balm.
Melbourne’s own urban lurker Mark Barrage blazes out a path of crafty numbers that sound born out of future machines, and conjure images of a radio play on some loner ship out there in the cosmos. Sometimes pointillist, sometimes swelling, the icy synths cover the sharp end of the spectrum, while processed bass and jilted (sometimes phat) beats cover the smooth and the deep. Somewhere in between are the embedded vocoded melodies that sing like a mournful robot, once human. R&B&SCI FI
Another lone creator of the Melbourne sort is Angel Eyes. His heavily refracted guitar lines twang and echo in the foreground while tranced keyboard tones shimmer like the northern lights above a plodding, rusted minimalist drum machine march. Eventually stepping to the mic, the vocals boom out, low and somber and smeared across a shadowy reverb chamber dome.
Be there, with them.
Performing @ Serial Space on the 4th day of Febuary
