Freedom Machines 3, a posthumous exhibition of Gold Coast photographer and filmmaker Tim Caraco, is running through February and March at Dust Temple Currumbin.
Celebrated Gold Coaster Tim Caraco will be remembered for capturing vintage bikes, choppers and their riders from around the world in an honest reflection of machine and man. The well-travelled photographer was loved by many, and his tragic death has touched the masses.
Tim had a knack for highlighting the essence of riding and the visceral experience of motion through majestic mountain ranges, seaside villages, dusty back roads and cityscapes. The images Tim captured often motivate the viewer to explore the essence of freedom, the natural state where we all truly belong.
Tim’s family have together curated ‘Freedom Machines 3’, an exhibition which depicts works from the final years of the prolific artist’s life. The exhibition will be an immersive experience for viewers, showcasing vintage motorcycles, photography and video, highlighting the places his adventures have taken him.
The Opening Event on Saturday 23 February will include live music, a preview of images from the soon-to-be-released book ‘Halfway to Nowhere ~ Tasmania’, along with projections put together by Tim’s close friends and associates from 40/40 Creative. This will be the first in a series of exhibitions and events to help realise the projects Tim commenced and had planned for 2019.
“I know that these will all be silly stories one day and just like our skin they will fade and turn into old photographs, but for right now they aren’t just stories and photographs. This shimmering space where imagination and reality intersect, this place. This is where I live.” – Tim Caraco, ‘Freedom Machines 2’.
‘Freedom Machines 3, a Tim Caraco Tribute Exhibition’ will open on Saturday 23 February at 6.30pm at Dust Temple Currumbin and will run until 13 March 2019. Tickets are $10 and must be purchased beforehand from Moshtix. All works will be for sale and orders will be taken for the ‘Halfway to Nowhere’ book on the evening and throughout the exhibition. All proceeds will go towards the Tim Caraco Foundation.
