One of the sculptures included in Michael Parekowhai’s current Venice installation On First Looking into Chapman’s Homer is a pair of crocs made out of bronze.  These rubbery eyesores caught Australia’s biennale representative Hany Armanious’s attention too.  In 2007 they featured prominently in his installation Year of the Pig Sty at Foxy Production in New York (below).

New Planes Public Press


Sydney-based editors Lisa Lerkenfeldt and Hayley Morgan describe their emerging publication New Planes as a ‘framework for re-evaluating what is considered acceptable contemporary journalism’.  Following a snappy looking pilot issue with cover art by Jake Walker, they’re set to launch issue one at Good God in Sydney this Thursday (details above).  Featuring articles on Hany Armanious and Tom Polo, you can grab a copy from one of the following locations.
