Bellmouth - A widening of a railroad tunnel to provide for a future branch connection.
XYZ’s inaugral group exhibition at the Ipswich Community Gallery. Bellmouth is a survey of recent work by artists who live, work or create in areas outside of Brisbane’s privileged city center. “Ipswich itself could be considered a kind of bellmouth: a liminal space between the concentrated but well-trodden urban sprawl and the possibility-filled wide expanse of the bush.”
