SITE EIGHT / Friday 5 October to Thursday 26 October
Yin-Hua Chu is the recipient of the 2017 Taiwanese Arts Residency Exchange, supported by RMIT University and the Kuandu Museum of Fine Arts. Deciphering Cities_Melbourne uses the city of Melbourne as a point of departure. By tracing and sketching fragmented references of Melbourne found on the internet, including vintage maps, old photographs and film stills, Yin-Hua visualises her imagination of Melbourne before her actual arrival. During the residency period Yin-Hua will use these source materials to construct the gallery space and invite ‘Greeters’ (local volunteers who guide tourists on free walking tours of the city) to present this ‘Imagined Melbourne’.

LIGHTSCAPES / 26 June to 29 October 2017
The 50s and 60s were the golden age of Hong Kong's movie industry. At that time, a unique approach was adopted to overlap images on the film to create a variety of visual experiences. This project, which was developed by Hong Kong artist Carol Lee Mei-Kuen, uses as its ground a series of historical movie posters from this period. Dialogue Across the Years considers the role and position of the public and of advertising in both this source material and its light box installation. Through "time drawing", Lee reproduces, remembers and reinvigorates some of the captivating and wonderful stories of Hong Kong's cultural history.

LIGHTSCAPES / 30 October 2017 to 4 January 2018 at the RMIT Building 2 Lightwell
Long lived by the idea of a starry sky, this series explores the Australian night sky and its stars as an investigation of light, detail and texture. Reinforced by the presentation in lightboxes, these landscapes are forced into an artificial setting, mimicking the light illuminated from the galaxy. The tactility of the print medium is also extended by the puncturing of fine holes through the print to emphasize texture.
