Curated especially for the 2017 Castlemaine State Festival, periSCOPE is a compilation of videos and moving image works from across the Philippine archipelago.
This collection of artworks has been compiled by 98B COLLABoratory, a multidisciplinary artist-run initiative that seeks to establish a convergence between artists, designers, curators, writers, activists, educators and the general public.
The video works included in periSCOPE have been selected by multiple curators from across the Philippines, with the resulting compendium showcasing diverse glimpses and peripheries as seen through many lenses. The works offer rare insight into regional contemporary Filipino art production and demonstrate a striking range of themes, geographies and cultural issues.
The Filipino community in Australia, and past visitors to the Philippines, are invited to create a collage in the form of a landscape of memories by bringing along memorabilia, objects, letters, mementos, photos and postcards from the Philippines. These items will be filmed, photographed and screened throughout the duration of the Festival.
The Conscious Caravan (in the Food Garden) will be open 10am to 4pm on the scheduled dates below, serving breakfast juice, smoothies and treats, as well as a large range of tea and coffee.
