FRUITISTS (fruit growers, fruiterers and fruit-loving artists) REQUIRED
And it needs artists and fruitists to make it all happen.
(f)route will explore the East Gippsland places that embrace localism – embracing their smallness, remoteness and resourcefulness. Communities that know ‘their place’, and ‘their produce’.
We are proposing an arts project that will pay homage to the importance ‘going local’ – through the geography, history, and traditions of each location’s fruit.
The artistic outcomes of the project will be a series of installations (FROUTE CARTS), an interactive map of stories and images (FROUTE CART-OGRAPHY), and an exhibition of artist-made maps which will provide an artist’s interpretation of East Gippsland fruit.
