Andy Quilty @ Heathcote Museum & Gallery

Event Title: Hoon.
Participating Artists: Andy Quilty

Venue: Heathcote Museum & Gallery, 58 Duncraig Road, Applecross.

Description: Heathcote Museum & Gallery's 2015 'TILT' artist is Andy Quilty,
who presents 'Hoon' - a solo exhibition of new works.

'Hooning', a term favoured by authorities, references the act of performing
'burnouts' - a deliberate imprint of melted rubber left by a motor vehicle
in a physical recording of oneself onto the suburban environs.

In Hoon the artist examines notions of the burnout as a suburbanite marking
of territory within a historical and post colonial context. Drawing upon the
social and physical history of Point Dundas and surrounding areas, ideas
around ownership, entitlement and sense of place form the basis of enquiry.

Dates: 14 November 2015 to 20 December 2015.
Opening Times: Tues-Fri, 10am to 3pm; Sat-Sun, 12 noon to 4pm; closed
Mondays .
