The Pickup Artists

Mish Meijers, Sally Rees

Mish Meijers and Sally Rees have each developed new work for the Contemporary Art Tasmania gallery. They pursue paranormal entities by ‘calling’ and ‘luring’; sending out signals and coded visual messages in the hope of garnering some response. The artists use decoys to convince potential ‘visitors’ that the gallery may be a safe and welcoming space for them to enter and make their presence known.
