“Many civilizations built cities in the sky, or wished to do so.  On my third voyage I set out in a sky-boat for Aotearoa, in search of the city which hovers over Dunedin, built on crystals. It was not more than 14 hours when a great storm arose to the East, with a strong gale from the West.  Taking shelter in a cave, I crept out as the day advanced.  I walked amongst the rocks, but was forced to retreat.  I turned back in the shadow of a bombed-out Awakened figure, which hid the sun for six or seven minutes. The air became much colder, and the sky then brightened where I stood.

Over that very place appeared three floating objects, like heads in progressive states of decomposition, descending almost parallel to me which spake of Cultural Revolution.  You could hardly conceive my astonishment, to behold these suspended in the air, rising and sinking in quiescence.  For awhile they seemed to stand still, conferring in earnest, whilst looking upon me. One called out in a clear, smooth dialect “When the world and beings are filled with the fruits of unwholesome acts, and unwanted sufferings pour down like rain…”  Looking away into the distance they closed their eyes, or withdrew them entirely into their sockets.  And the Long White Cloud fell silent in the remotest region of the world.”       . . . April Dolkar

“Back of Beyond” refers to a point that is the furthest from known lands, past civilization and into imagination.  Curated by Jane Hart, this group exhibition is a diverse selection of work in various media, inspired by the tradition of adventure. Participating artists have been invited to draw inspiration from the literary classic “Gulliver’s Travels”, a tale of imaginary voyages into lands unknown by Jonathan Swift, published in 1726.

To complement our ‘Wine on Harvest Moon’ event, featuring wines from Australia and New Zealand.
