Raglan St Gallery

Tucked away in a small alley-type street behind North Melbourne Town Hall I found Raglan St Gallery. I liked the space, suitably grungy and adhoc with not too much fussiness. The group show on view when I visited in September was titled Digital Outlawed. All the artists were invited to make work NOT using any electronic or digital technology. Although there was no digital there was still plenty of technology. An old magnetic tape playing sex sounds, a vintage movie projector with that lovely film machine noise. Bullet holes pierced through some cards – and photos showing someone walking around with a gun. In the front room  some wall text greeted you, and lying on its side nearby was an old car door ripped from its place with a couple of mesmerising ball bearings circling the metal – apparently this trick used electric motors – nothing digital.IMG_7642
