Performance Space and Carriageworks present
Thursday 20 October – Sunday 6 November, 10am – 6pm daily
(open until 10pm on performance evenings)
“[His] works seem to unlock a hidden beauty from ordinary objects. He has a surgeon-like passion for the inner workings of machinery.” Monica Tan, The Guardian, Australia
A major commission by Performance Space and Carriageworks, Melody Lines is a mesmerising kinetic installation by leading Brisbane-based artist Ross Manning. Utilising an intricate overhead conveyor system, Melody Lines weaves through Carriageworks’ public space like a multi-dimensional drawing, carrying a stream of pendants that split and refract light into many-hued colours and spectra.
As its components move through space, Melody Lines projects an ever-shifting array of coloured light and shadows, transforming Carriageworks’ interior into a dreamlike landscape in a perpetual state of motion and flux. An enthralling meditation on perception and the senses, Melody Lines invites us to reconsider our surroundings and bask in its astounding radiance.
Closing Night Performance
Saturday 5 November, 8 – 8:30pm
Join Ross Manning on a sonic odyssey to farewell Melody Lines and close Liveworks with a hum, clang and whistle. Playing a variety of hand built percussive and electronic instruments, Manning will create a mesmeric and intriguing musical improvisation that will enliven, respond and harmonise with his dazzling light installation in the Carriageworks public space.
Ross Manning is represented by Milani Gallery, Brisbane.
