BOOK LAUNCH :)
‘BEFORE THIS COMES TO PASS’
Rochelle Marie Adam
Join us on the corner for a new show and book launch. Debut book by Rochelle and publisher: Tall Poppy Press.
‘Sitting between the desire to leave and a love for those who’ve stayed, Before this comes to pass centers on the feeling of not quite wanting to be here but not really wanting to say goodbye. Rochelle Marie Adam’s debut monograph is imbued with love and care, attention directed to what makes each person and place worth loving, but also worth leaving. Like a buoyancy one gains only from cutting ties, the cities and suburbs shown are both comfortable but also empty: profoundly solitary and overwhelmingly lived in. Adam’s photos trace feelings of joy amidst an undercurrent of dread. As old friends become old friends, house mates because house bound and the suburbs now feel not just dull but desolate, Adam’s work shows the subtle details that point to closeness, the worlds we build for ourselves through the things we own and the visibility of our relationships
Yet far from hard or critical, those shown are always viewed as connected, loved and noticed: even as domestic life itself may feel worrisome, those who live it are always photographed tenderly and kindly, with conviction and respect. Adams’ work asks: what is the space between restless and settling down? What is the feeling between appreciation and worry? What do we make for ourselves when given the chance?’

Australia faced one of its worst bush fire seasons during the summer of 2019 going on to 2020, with around 18,636,079 hectares burnt.
In response to this national tradegy, we teamed up with our friends at Rewind Photo Lab and a few artists we have worked with in the past to get a print sale up and running, with 100% of proceeds to be split between WIRES and FIRE RELIEF FUND FOR FIRST NATIONS COMMUNITIES.
Due to not meeting the deadline for FIRE RELIEF FUND FOR FIRST NATIONS COMMUNITIES, we decided to split that half of the funds between SEED MOB and FIRESTICKS ALLIANCE.
We raised $2,200.00
Artists in order:
