Yours, Mine & Ours
Yours, Mine & Ours is an event-based platform for Sydney’s emerging creative talent, inclusive of art in a variety of forms.
YMO Projects presents ‘YMO @ HOME’, a free event showcasing a killer lineup of local, interstate, and international artists to exhibit in the theme of ‘home’. The team are excited to invite you all to their home for a night of immersive arts and music. They’ve been considering the way ‘the home’ acts as an instrumental site for the development of race, class, and gender. A bunch of artists have been invited to respond to this idea in the cosy context of the team’s very own home.
You will be graced with an acoustic lineup of music from some of our city’s best up-and-coming musicians.
Aislinn Young combines country, folk, rock, and grunge, in a powerful and seamless way, leading listeners through melancholic vocal passages to intense instrumental sections—it’s like listening to Mazzy Star and Crazy Horse.
RUBY is a singer/songwriter who has a love for storytelling through honest lyrics and raw emotion. There is pain in her sultry vocals, so let her serenade you with truth as she explores her fear of the unknown, her distrust for big corporations with no care for human hearts, and love songs for lost souls. RUBY is set to release her debut single ‘2 LOST SOULS’ this March, so don’t miss her at YMO @ HOME!
Sam McEwen (The S-Bends, Bland) writes music that sounds like that early morning coffee on a flight that you missed, like not moving to Hobart or Melbourne, like lying on a blow-up mattress down the coast.
There are a multitude of talented artists showing their work at YMO @ HOME, here is a little taster of what you can look forward to seeing:
Caitlin Fargher is a multi-disciplinary artist working in sculptural installation, curating and textiles. She is presenting a piece named ‘These Berries Belong Somewhere Else’ using mulberries, blackberries, loganberries, native blueberries, cloves, silk, and linen.
Her recent work has engaged with the disconnect between white-settler industries and the landscape, forcing a necessary conversation that concerns both personal and entangled histories, materials and sites.
Orson Heidrich is a video artist living and working out of Sydney. He mainly works within the moving image, bridging between photography and video. Using these mediums he explores the contemporary space between them and uses it as a tool to examine his world around him.
Lily Keenan is a freelance artist who draws on congruous patterns in anatomy, botany and tales from myth and legend. Intricate and sometimes strange, her art is a realist examination of a dream-like world. She is displaying a series of small paintings that discuss how different objects in the home have represented different points of development in her life.
Emma Pinsent is a multifaceted artist working across painting and sculpture. Emma is interested in blurring the lines between the actual and illusionary; working to recreate two-dimensional, irregular shapes into life-size, three-dimensional objects. She is bringing anthropomorphic sculptures to YMO @ HOME.
YMO has a few surprises in store, including an immersive, improvised performance piece entitled “Living with Us” produced by Annabelle Kablean.
The lovely people at ‘Yeah Nah Yeah’ have premiered a playlist for YMO @ HOME. All the contributors pitched in a song that reminds them of home. Have a read and a listen to get to know the artists here.
This event is FREE, and we will be collecting gold coin donations. 100% of the money raised will be heading straight to Nature Restoration Australia. These funds will be invested in vegetation rehabilitation, mending damage caused by the recent wildfires in Tasmania.
In light of the recent and severe Tasmanian bushfires NRA will work with both Parks and Wildlife and Wildcare Volunteers to assess the damaged areas then develop restoration plans.
