Andrew Brocchi whistleblowerpetition

Whistle Blower Petition is a collaboration between artists, Louise Dibben, and Dyana Gray.
Over the period of a month, participants were invited back to our Melbourne studio to be filmed wolf whistling. We filmed 100 men, and made a 5 minute video.

Each participant, was asked to give his name, and sign a petition after his wolf whistle is documented.

Whistle Blower Petition will be exhibited in November as part of the Women’s Salon 2011 at the Counihan Gallery.
This year’s exhibition marks the anniversary of a landmark event in Australian history – the centenary of women voting in the Victorian Legislative Assembly elections, which enabled women to run for public office. The official opening night coincides with the same date that one hundred years ago on 16 November 1911, women were given the opportunity to exercise their vote in Legislative Assembly elections for the first time.

Teepee Project

The Teepee Project was a collaboration with artist, Thomas Morison. The project was a site specific happening, part of a one-night-only exhibition held at the Northcote Uniting Church in Melbourne. We chose to exhibit outside the church. Erecting the Teepee was an important part of the project, as was the dismantling, and we invited people to help us.

The structure was made from paper cello tape, and steel rods. We installed a lamp inside the teepee when it was erected, fueled by the church’s power. It was warm and cosy! When drawings were made on the inside, they appeared on the outside too. We provided coloured pens and invited people to decorate our teepee with us, many drawings were made.
