Oi Oi Oi is a group exhibition that presents a series of individual responses to, and perspectives on, the Australian landscape. It is not an exhibition designed to explore the definition of landscape established by dictionary.com as ‘a section or expanse of rural scenery, usually extensive, that can be seen from a single viewpoint.’ I can also advise that it is not an exhibition that presents a process in which the appearance of an area of land will be improved through the planting of trees, shrubs or grass. Alternatively, Oi Oi Oi is a multidisciplinary representation of the Australian landscape; a selection of works that engage with a spectrum of social, political and environmental viewpoints. From cricketers on used mattress mounds to the profanity of Nick Cave’s t-shirt, Oi Oi Oi is an exhibition which invites audiences to look closer and to reconsider our interactions with and impact on country.
