    3. Asylum by Roger Ballen - Mona Roger Ballen is what you'd call a 'wound opener'. Working with black and white film, Ballen's photography sheds light on the darker side of the human self - a scab that most of us would perhaps rather leave untouched. He describes his work as fundamentally psychological and existential; for him, making art is an exercise in defining himself. His photography also incorporates drawings, sculptures, and a photographic drawing technique developed by Ballen himself. Ballen is at MONA to exhibit work from his Asylum and Apparitions series.
    4. Australian Native Beasts and Birds An exhibition of fibre based crafts from artisans across Australia. Presented by The Spindle Tree and Salamanca Arts Centre.

    10. Degradation and Reflection Degradation & Reflection is a photographic reconstruction by Mandy Schoene-Salter of decaying buildings and materials such as the roof of a burned down house, fallen down foliage and an abandoned old bus. These fragments of decay are captured in their processes of deterioration, and as they appear in frozen time capsules never again will they these objects appear as they were at the moment of capture; never again will they hold such potential. After the photographs are taken, the items are left behind, but a series of new constructions are made from these temporal image fragments. The elegant yet simple technique of mirroring or reflecting the photographs upon themselves were used, when the mirrored images construct duplicate worlds out of singular realities. The picture is no longer representing the real, or highlighting un-noticed details of life, but rather reconstructing a new image form fragments of the past.
    11. Dog's Day Out Dogs are special members of our families and Clarence Council dedicates a day to them at the Rosny Farm. Featuring agility competitions, dress-ups, visiting vets and the Poochibald Art Prize, Dogs Day Out also offers a barbecue and live music to entertain the whole family.

    18. Howelling On the 21 of October 1818, a convict from Yorkshire, England, Michael Howe was finally cornered and brutally clubbed to death by authorities. Howes decapitated body was unceremoniously buried near his hideout on the banks of the river Shannon, his head was in turn taken to Hobart town to be exhibited to the good people of that fine city. In his hut a kangaroo-skin diary was found and, as rumour and folklore has it Howe had inscribed with his own blood, not only his ruminations, but a list of flowers that he had once know back home in Yorkshire and had hoped to grow on the banks of the river. Sabrina Evans investigated this folklore and coupled it with the visual power and symbolism found in the Major Arcana of the Sun Tarot card. The Sun card, whilst appears joyful and uplifting, represents the dualities of life and death, reality and of the unconsciousness, a realm of what eventually will be experienced as physical death. Brings about a depiction of the folklore of Tasmanias colonial history as a symbolic step in the spiritual journey of this land.
    19. Hubert Duprat - Mona Meet Hubert Duprat. This French artist is an enigma of the best possible variety. He conducts experiments - not necessarily to solve problems or to test hypotheses - that poetically investigate the border between art and science. Fundamental questions for Duprat include 'what is art?' and 'what is an artist?' and his interests extend to geology and archaeology, as well as the natural sciences. Here at MONA - in his first solo exhibition in Australia - Duprat's intriguing approach will be on full display. This exhibition will see him use natural magnets, crystals sculpted by microscopic atomic arrangement, Neolithic flint-knapping techniques and synthetic substances invented by modern industry. He's also continuing his iconic decades-long work with the caddisfly. He'll enlist live indigenous caddisfly larvae (a freshwater aquatic insect) to decorate their silk body-cases with gold spangles and jewels instead of the usual pebbles, twigs and sand. Which begs the question: who's the artist here - human or insect?
    20. In the fast lane… In the fast lane... is an exhibition of mixed-media works by Donna Ritchie that explores our nostalgic triggers whilst commentating on our vehicle usage.

Some of the works are however along a more abstract theme again exploring that interaction.
    25. MetaMatter Nadege Philippe-Janon experiments with animation, materials and elemental substances, creating otherworldly miniature environments that explore relationships between human and non-human. From an anthropocentric view of the world, humans are considered to be active and nature is considered passive. However, we are surrounded by ever changing processes, systems within systems, and inextricably entwined networks of interaction. MetaMatter explores these networks and offers us a less human centered view of the living and material world, questioning the Western influenced dichotomy between nature and culture to suggest that we are implicated in and connected to the vibrant world around us. The works are created using animation and organic and inorganic ephemera, and emerge as miniature ecosystems in themselves, involving electricity, the gallery space and the viewer into their environments.
