We are fresh into the first week of Autumn here in sunny Brisvegas, but if you're a local you still have a couple of weeks to catch the SLQ's feature Summer exhibition called Paradise.
The exhibition explores the many notions of paradise through art, historical objects, kitsch and memorabilia and particularly how paradise has been represented in the history of Queensland - State Library of Qld
My favourite piece from the exhibit is titled "Hawaiian Sausages" by artist Colin Suggett. It's a cute & cheesy playful sensor-triggered installation, so upon approaching the artwork, the hotplate lights up & the sausages start dancing to the sounds of Hawaiian music. A Polynesian Pop party in a pan!
Mmmm...can't you just smell the silicone gravy? Kitsch-o-rama! I couldn't stop myself from continually triggering that sensor device either. I'm far too easily amused me thinks...
Paradise exhibition at the SLQ Gallery until 24 March 2008
