Fresh Produce is the closing event of the 2012 Next Wave Festival and a celebratory survey of contemporary experimental practice incorporating live art, installation, dance, video, music and performance. The first event of its kind to be staged at the iconic Queen Victoria Markets, Fresh Produce is an all-out ‘art party’ driven by one of the Festival’s central provocations: what makes people gather? And what better way for people to gather than around food?
About the Artist
Stephen Russell is currently based in Brisbane, Australia. He is a founding Co-Director of Accidentally Annie Street Space. Stephen Russell’s practice uses a variety of media including furniture, painting, sculpture, video, and text – combining, remaking, and reassembling these in order to explore the contingent and precarious nature of meaning. Translation between the digital and the handmade is often present in the work.
