The Projects is a temporary art gallery which will hold residence in a shop-front in Belgrave – the end of the train line, and the start of the Dandenong Ranges. The artists exhibiting are associated with Yarra Ranges, having either lived in, or grown up in the area.
One of these artists is 2010 NWF alumna Hannah Raisin, who presents Back Soon The Projects June exhibition, alongside Will Heathcote. Presenting a selection of personally pivotal early works and more recent projects, the works tell a story of making, responding to surroundings and developing new outcomes. It maps their individual ideas of wilderness, both real and imagined. Back Soon reflects on the ever cycling nature of creative interest and looks at the beginnings that drive artistic practice.
