The Rapture of Death is the experience of delight upon escaping grave danger, writes Prue Gibson. It offers the sweet knowledge that you are safe, at least for the moment, from the clutches of darkness. And it is a phrase which refers to the fear or apprehension of death, rather than the actual experience of dying.
Based on the book of the same name by Prue Gibson, The Rapture of Death features major works by some of Australia’s leading artists. Like the book, this unusual exhibition is a philosophical enquiry into the use of deathly imagery in contemporary art, and investigates why fear of death is an intrinsic part of life.
BASED ON THE BOOK: The Rapture of Death by Prue Gibson. Published by Boccalatte Pty Ltd.
OPENING: Friday 30 November 6.00pm. To be opened by Prue Gibson, Author, The Rapture of Death
Marian Drew and Jorge Deustua’s exhibition Beyond Landscape opens this weekend at the Queensland Centre for Photography. The exhibition explores landscape at night in Peru and Australia. The artists began this project in 2010 after a chance meeting in Australia, 2009.
This collaborative dialogue between two people with different histories, cultures and languages led to relatively exotic landscapes. Traveling from the desert of Paracas on the coast of Peru, up into the sacred valley of the Andes and into the south jungle of Peru, the Sandoval valley, the collaboration allowed both to witness another country supported through local knowledge and understanding. These National Parks and archeological sites were corresponded in Australia by travels to Fraser Island, Girraween National park and the pristine coastline of Central Queensland.
The launch of Drew and Deustua’s book, ‘The Rock and the Tree: Australia Peru’ will coincide with the opening of the exhibition.
Opening: Saturday 14 July 5-8pm
Exhibition dates: Sunday 15 July – Sunday 12 August

Marian Drew is featured in ANIMAL/HUMAN, an exhibition at the University of Queensland Art Museum. The exhibition explores our relationships with animals and the complexity, contradiction and connections between species. The exhibition focuses on the scientific, cultural and ethical nature of our relationships. A number of works continue traditions whereby animals are depicted in symbolic or totemic form, are endowed with human qualities, or stand in for the self.
“Contemporary Australian artists are producing an astonishing array of artworks that not only depict animals, but also focus on the animal-human relationship in all its positive and negative permutations,” exhibition curator Michele Helmrich said.
The exhibition is on until 22 July.
