"New Empires" Flag Exhibition at VSTR Byron Bay

The wonderful, amazing Chrissie Abbott and I have colaborated to make a flag for the "New Empires" Exhibition curated by the ever so talented Joe Allen. 

"New Empires is an exhibition of new work that will take the form of artist’s flags. 
The flag is a banner that can be held as a symbol for many things including simple decoration 
but because of it’s position in the historical cache always becomes a representation of place, 
politics, beliefs, position, currency, alegience, faith, community, symbol and/or signaling device. 
This exhibition allows the opportunity for artists to consider a state (in the broadest sense) that 
represents their position, as if their very own country. 
Displayed in our row of world flags as if at a world fair, the exhibition will exist as if a roll call of 
New Empires in a world ruled by artists. If only. 
Swaying from the rafters, the audience will be able to walk under the flags and look up at the 
waving works."

"New Empires will be an accessible exhibition 
at VSTR’s new Byron Bay concept store. The 
label creates lifestyle and travel goods, with 
an environment and ocean slant. For the 
opening all product will be removed from the 
store to create a beautiful clean space with 
timber beams and floors. When the elegantly 
handcrafted timber and steel racks are 
returned, imporantly the artworks will be able 
remain uncompromised by the fittings as they 
drape from the pitched ceiling."

These therapies are great for people who tend to overanalyze their situations
and will be of great use to them. And, since you are going to look in the internet, you can easily pick
out, from the many sites, the cheapest massage therapist that can give you the best Swedish
massage of your life. You will also get the chance to
participate in discussions along with your fellow students.
