Bass Coast artists star in Iceland

LOCAL artists went global recently, with some of their artworks featured in galleries in Iceland.
Intraliminal – a collective of artists in Bass Coast initiated by sibling team Shasta Stevic and Caigan Meade – were invited to hold an exhibition as part of the Skammdegi Festival in Northern Iceland.
The exhibition featured work and music produced by 17 local artists under the age of 25. Shasta and Caigan curated the exhibition on behalf of artists Alex Durand, Alex McEntee, Archie Leggett, Charlotte Huigsloot, Chloe Papillon, Dashel Tran, Emmy Horvath, Georgia Butterfield, Lily Anne Hakansson, Meghan Dal Masetto, Sonny Witton, Xander Nunan, Nic Barron (aka vowl), Hannah McKittrick (Hoi Polloi) and Humming (Archie Leggett and Nic Huigsloot).
Caigan’s work was also featured.
Intraliminal held two exhibitions as part of the festival, as they were invited to the home of an Icelandic artist and gallerist who was impressed by the calibre of work from Bass Coast.
The main exhibition took place in an old house in a central location, so people could stop in and admire the work over two months.
Shasta said the exhibition was a hit, and exhibition-goers shared a lot of interest in the work of the talented Bass Coast artists.
Shasta and Caigan launched Intraliminal to showcase the high quality work young artists produce, feeling many artists lacked the opportunity to do so.
They grew up on Phillip Island. Caigan is currently studying Year 12 at Wonthaggi Secondary College and is this year’s arts captain.
As a follow on from the Icelandic exhibition, Intraliminal came home to hold an exhibition as part of the Wonthaggi Street Festival.

Curator: Shasta Stevic was proud to showcase the work of 17 young Bass Coast artists at a festival in Iceland.
