Opening – Argo Pacifico
90 Hunter St, Newcastle, NSW, 2300
Welcome aboard ARGO PACIFICO…
ARGO PACIFICO is not an exhibition. It is a real life cruise ship that has been temporally and spatially phased into the walls of The Lock-Up. We are just shadows, granted a fleeting look at a hyper-slowed moment aboard ARGO PACIFICO as it enters an electric fog on the threshold of the Bermuda Triangle.
Its rooms and halls seemingly empty, hold the stories of the passengers it last breathed before being caught between mysterious points, flung through the endless passing of one moment.
The captain is missing, and strange sightings in the night air have been whispered about, but that is easy to ignore when the ship boasts such luxury and first-class entertainment.
Enjoy your stay aboard dear shadow, flicker and linger in the halls, dance into the corners and cling to the beams…
Featuring artists Jen Denzin and Oliver Harlan.
FREE EVENT, everyone’s welcome.
