The Sydney Perfume lovers Meet up group, run by Catherine du Peloux Menagé are gathering their forces and attending the exhibition on Thursday evening 5.2.14. They will be privy to a special talk by Ainslie and Tamara and a keepsake of the evening to take home.

Catherine from the Sydney Perfume Lovers Meetup says:
“The artist Tamara Dean has collaborated with one of our members, the talented Ainslie Walker, to create an innovative art installation ‘Here and now’. Our senses will be heightened (including the sense our group is all about, naturally) as we take in the artwork and each one of us will have a different perspective. To say more would be to detract from the evening so you’ll just have to come along to be part of it.
We’ll experience the installation one person at a time, then Tamara and Ainslie will talk to us about the inspiration and ideas behind the installation, as well as the process of creation, over a drink . ‘Here and now’ will take place in the Kensington area of Sydney. The exact location has not yet been disclosed (not even to me!) and I will let you know the address by email nearer the time.
You will take away a special gift which will remind of your experience of the evening by stimulating your limbic system in a unique way. Intrigued? See you there. “

  1. Ainslie,
    You already know it but “I am so proud to be your friend”. Every bit of good that happens to you is hard earned and I love that you keep persevering and never give up.
    You inspire me.
    Congratulations on another fantastic achievement. Can’t wait to see and sniff.
    Portia xx


  2. ooooo! now THIS would be a reason to finally head ‘down under’!

    congrats Ainslie! what fascinating new worlds lie in this undisclosed location?!! i am so intrigued and thrilled at this merging of art forms.

    i also kinda dig that it is like an old school rave where you simply don’t know where it is until it’s happening… one of the best ways to enter a new world. 😉

    much light! much success!
