As Earth’s most troublesome tenant, we are at risk of eviction.

Our existence depends on the planet’s delicately balanced ecosystems. Distracted by the demands of ordinary life, it is easy to become disengaged, complacent or overwhelmed with feelings of impotency when confronted with the future.

Created through the collaboration of three Adelaide artists, John Blines, Michele Lane and Georgina Willoughby, this exhibition offers insight into the artists’ shared journey of exploration and response to these universal concerns.

The opening on Thursday, November 2nd, at Light Square Gallery will be included in the ‘Art after Dark’ programme. The public are also invited to contribute to this project. For details on how to contribute contact us:

By default, everyone should be concerned with the future of the planet – our future!

‘Rare Earth’ invites you to pause, reflect and collectively imagine alternative futures within an immersive new work of light, soundscape, text and image.

To help start this conversation with you, the Rare Earth Artists are currently looking for support to assist with gallery hire and material costs.

Rare Earth is an ongoing collaboration between three Adelaide artists, John Blines, Michele Lane and Georgie Willoughby.

Connecting while at art college, they share a belief and concern that the economic paradigm of endless growth that drives the current trajectory of resource consumption is flawed and threatens the future of the planet.

John has been Artist in Residence at Flinders Centre for Innovation in Cancer since 2015 and is developing a transdisciplinary art practice at the nexus of art and science. His research includes molecular biology, behavioural science and knowledge translation.

Michele’s works across printmaking and installation art, exploring the rich but conflicted interface between humanity and its planet. Projection and video art are mediums currently being employed by Lane to examine the sustainability of our contemporary existence.

Georgina’s work is informed by the ever-changing nature of landscape and our tenuous and intimate sense of belonging and place within it. Notions of time, cultural and natural memory are reflected in her open and experimental combinations of printmaking techniques and materials explored both en plein air and within her studio.
