ROLLIN' CONTACT featuring Melbourne Launch of ILP at this years Melbourne Bike Festival

Rollin’ Contact
An exhibition thinking through bikes                                                              
Part of the Melbourne Bike Festival 2010
Thursday 25th November- Sunday 28th November 2010
 11:00 AM – 10:00PM

Bikes have passed beyond being simply mechanical objects used for travel to become symbols of unity. They exist in our lives as companions, entering our lexicon and folklore through transit, speed and mobile revelry.
Rollin’ Contact draws from the terminology of physics to describe the point of contact between a wheel and its surface. Expanded broadly, it represents the themes of connection and commonality between people and bikes. Between bikes and art. Between art and people.
The exhibition will feature drawings, prints, silkscreens, photographic images, installations, design, video, paintings, sculptures, puppets and textiles that expand on the theme.
A component of the show comprises works by artists who form a part of the Inter-Location Project, (ILP). ILP is an independent organisation formed to build a DIY arts bridge between the two cities of Jogjakarta, Indonesia and Melbourne, Australia. ILP aims to express and maintain varied forms of artistic and cultural dialogue, creative commonalities and friendship between these two bicycle-loving cities in addition to raising much needed funds for helping the displaced in the city in the wake of the Mt. Merapi volcano disaster.

AYO! MIX FUN The beginnings of Inter-Location Project

The Inter-Location Project (ILP) is an independent organisation formed to build a DIY arts bridge between the two cities of Jogjakarta, Indonesia and Melbourne, Australia. ILP formed during 2010 after several Melbourne Artists travelled to Jogjakarta (YK) The open welcome, cultural kinship and friendship shared was overwhelming. The Melbournians were immediatley adopted as a part of the community by their Indonesian counterparts and immersed in a vibrantly expressive and creative environment. This culminated in the first ILP exhibition AYO! MIX FUN at Bayu Widodo's Surivive! Garage Art space in July 2010.

ILP aims to express and maintain various forms of artistic and cultural dialogue, creative commonalities, and friendship between the two cities of Melbourne and Yogjalarta. Through this process we want to dissolve arbitrary International borders stifling our collective opportunities for diverse and strong Trans-National communities. Through this one blood nationally we want to celebrate and learn from our commonalities while still participating in difference. ILP's mission is to echo this experience to our Indonesian friends by offering them the oppourtunity to travel and to take part in our creative communites in Australia. Participating artists are: LOVEHATELOVE, El Kampretto, and Bayu Widodo. These artists push the boundaries in their chosen mediums in Indonesia and play central roles in strengthening communities in which they are a part. The Australian line up of artists continues to grow, propelled towards the project by either their own experiences within these communities in Indonesia or their involvment in creative communities here. They include SNOTRAG, SIMPLETOWNWORX, Tuffy, Roda Roda Crew, Tom Civil, Braddock, and Georg
