2006 Biennale of Sydney - Zones of Contact

The Biennale of Sydney is Australia's largest and most exciting international visual arts event. The Biennale of Sydney is held in Sydney's leading museums and galleries and is renowned for showcasing the freshest and most innovative contemporary art from Australia and around the world. Since 1973 the Biennale of Sydney exhibitions have presented the work of more than 1200 artists from over sixty countries. Most of these artists were also brought to Sydney by the Biennale, which often facilitated their travel and co-ordinated their professional engagements in a national outreach program to art schools and universities across Australia. Please visit the Biennale of Sydney website for more information on the Biennale's mission, history and past exhibitions. The concept 'Zones of Contact' forms the framework and organising principle of the 2006 Biennale of Sydney, which will include a range of artists from around the world practising in all forms of the visual arts. 'Zones of Contact' is about the spaces in which people live in and move between, the spatial dimensions of cities, settlements, territories, the land and home. The work refers to the temporal dimensions of those spaces, the body, everyday life, places in which people encounter one another and other cultures and sense of self and their histories.

Show Me the Way (Take 4)


I'm producing some music now, under the moniker of Ko-Jacq. Got a drum 'n bass tune, called "Show Me the Way" at It's still a work in progress, but thought to whack it up on the web anyways. I'm not a Virgo, with an aversion to showing my 'works in progress' out in public before they are completed...tehehe

Still trying to find out if Filter (Aliak) has an upload facility, so I can whack the mp3 on this site too...

Anyways, bye for now...Heya,
