Deb Mans­field looks to pe­riph­eral spa­ces as a way of in­ves­ti­gat­ing the na­ture of bound­aries and borders. In choos­ing spa­ces that are nei­ther here nor there, and by con­flat­ing truth with fic­tion, she uses these sites as stopovers in her nav­i­ga­tion across a con­tem­po­rary cul­tural land­scape. In­cludes pho­tog­ra­phy, tapestry, sculp­tural and in­stal­la­tion works. Re­cent works is on dis­play along­side Alex Riske’s Mark­ing In­fin­ity and JP Wil­lis’s Utopia. Pic­tured be­low, Deb Mans­field’s Are you sure you can’t hear that? (2015). Do­ing Jus­tice Bar­ris­ter Ju­lian Burn­side prac­tises in com­mer­cial lit­i­ga­tion, trade prac­tices and ad­min­is­tra­tive law, as well as work­ing as an ad­vo­cate for refugees and tak­ing on pro bono hu­man rights cases. Burn­side’s com­mit­ment to jus­tice runs long — with a pro­nounced com­mit­ment to asy­lum-seeker and Abo­rig­i­nal and Tor­res Strait Is­lan­der is­sues, and he will lead a panel con­ver­sa­tion about jus­tice with host Ben­jamin Law. As part of the Mon­day Con­ver­sa­tions se­ries pre­sented by Wheeler Cen­tre, Syd­ney Writ­ers Fes­ti­val and Belvoir. Belvoir The­atre, 25 Belvoir Street, Syd­ney. Oc­to­ber 9, 6.30pm.
