Bianca Tainsh is a trans-disciplinary artist, based in Queensland. Highly research based, her practice explores the many contemporary paradigms that make the world what it is today - culture, science, consumerism, politics, history, the Internet - seeking connections and phenomena that inspire reflection on existential and biospherical dilemmas, and content to construct a meaningful and multifaceted discussion around the conceptual topics of Bianca’s research. The works realised through this conceptual approach take many forms, and often generate intimate moments of connection with the audience, endeavouring to reverberate outside of the gallery and realise actual social transformation.
Tainsh has exhibited in solo and group shows, both in Australia and internationally. She has participated in international residency programs and been the recipient of an ArtStart grant among other awards. Though a dedicated contemporary artist Tainsh has curated exhibitions for galleries, festivals, and independently. Her artistic education includes a 1st Class Honours and Bachelor of Fine Arts from RMIT University, and to compliment the social aspects of her practice she also studied Arts & Community Engagement at the Victorian College of the Arts.
10 - 2pm - 21st September, 2019. One day participatory event at Outer Space, Brisbane.
Outer Space’s project room becomes a manufacturing lab for illuminated Meme creation. Become a revolutionary in creative resistance. Join this one day campaign, and liberate the Meme from its corrupted state as an infectious tool for spreading base humour and malicious politics, to its rightful position as a radical instrument for idealistic activism.
Bring a laptop, bring a tablet, bring a friend. There will also be non-digital media on hand if you prefer to get your hands dirty. This is art, so we can break the rules. At the end of the day we’ll flood the digital arteries of social media with our creations. Let’s redeem the Meme and make the Internet great again. Bystanders welcome.
This is the first in a series of Outer Space events by artist Bianca Tainsh. Join the comradery as her meta-movement The League for Human Integrity disentangles us from capitalistic ideologies by reconfiguring the tools already used to infiltrate and format our minds.
