SALA Exhibition

Exhibition Opening Friday August 4 6pm-8pm

With guest DJ Driller Jet Armstrong

Opening Speaker Caroll KarpanyNgarrindjeri Elder

Addoriginal Artworks by Driller Jet Armstrong and others.

Driller Jet Armstrong has been painting over paintings by other artists for many years, (Daubism), often reworking Australian landscapes to include indigenous symbols.

Driller continues his investigations into Terra Nullius as unwittingly depicted by artists whose paintings show the Australian landscape painted in the European style, empty of, and devoid of any signs of an existing culture.

Caroll Karpany is a Ngarrindjeri Elder and he is a renowned guitarist who was a founding member of Us Mob who along with No Fixed Address were the first two contemporary indigenous rock bands ever recorded through their appearance in the film “Wrong side of the Road” and in 1981 were nominated for an AFI award for best original music for the film. Most recently he appeared as an actor in Charlie Hill Smith’s film “Motor Kite Dreaming”

Ant Williams is kindly sponsoring the opening event by supplying the sound system for the DJ set with Driller.  Easy AV is a local Adelaide Hills Company that specialise in sound and visual systems.
