G3 Artspace

Another week, another new gallery opens somewhere in Victoria. This time, lovely Parkdale has a fresh white cube to show off and boy is it doing a good job.

G3 Artspace, run by Kingston Arts, comprises a single room inside Shirley Burke Theatre. The wall facing the street is a floor-to-ceiling window, which not only provides an immense amount of light but also creates a nice dialogue between the works and the town itself. At the moment, sitting just inside the window, is a projector screen showing a work from the current show visible from both the inside and outside of the gallery.

The current show Requiem by Megan Evans uses dead bees as an allegory for the gradual destruction of our natural environment. Analysing these bees through 500 photographs, two video pieces and one large drawing, Evans has developed an exhibition of visual saturation which — despite the amount of work presented — is not overcrowded.

The gallery website doesn’t list opening hours. It actually wasn’t open when I visited and I had to convince someone working at the theatre to open for me. The gallery is well worth a visit, but perhaps email ahead before making the trip. Although, if it’s not open, you can always peek through the window then eat chips on the beach.

Requiem – Megan Evans
Exhibition: Thurs 12 April – Sat 19 May
Artist Floor Talk: Sat 21 April, 2pm
G3: Artspace, Shirley Burke Theatre, 64 Parkers Road, Parkdale
