|notfair|’s 10th year was last year, but, due to The Plague we were obviously unable to celebrate accordingly. In 2021 we are making up for lost time in a big way. Please join us for a celebration of the arts at our greatest event to date! Our 2021 venue is the former Kardinia Church in Windsor. Holding a fair in a former place of worship in a time of post pandemic insecurity and enduring hardship for the arts – which has resulted in many artists have grown understandably obsessed with issues of climate change and the very fate of Planet Earth – has been A Leap of Faith indeed and seems the obvious connection that brought together |notfair| 2021.
37 artist, showcasing over 200 works in what may seem an eclectic feast of visual triggers – are connected in this undercurrent of apocalyptic obsession, and what follows there are references to Earth aplenty – the use of earth itself as a media, depictions of the landscape irradiated and images of its denizens such as feasting meat ants. There are found objects rearranged – even the bulk of a Volkswagen Golf, grown obese with strange metallic fungus.
All in all, |notfair| 2021 remains a stubborn celebration of creativity and imagination and skill in the face of adversity.
