Serpentine Community Gallery presents solo artists

Kerrie Divett and Corinne Batt-Rawden

in a joint exhibition entitled

Modus Vivendi.

An agreement between conflicting parties

thus coexisting peacefully

and creating a mode of living.

Modus Vivendi:

n.pl. A manner of living; a way of life.

n. A manner of living that reflects the person's values and attitudes.

'Contemplating Treatment'

Kerrie's work utilizes various mediums

to explore her relationship to the language

that surrounds a diagnosis of breast cancer.

These works are a commentary on

her personal, emotional, physical and social relationships as she defines her mode of living.

'Cellular Storm'

Corinne's artistic expressions

investigate the inner conflict of being,

and her relationship to self

and her environment

through expressions, textures,

and observations through

print, painting and clay.

'Sleeping With Tamoxafin'

Opening night will also give Lismore's music-lovers

the chance to see Sydney queer punk outfit

Eat My Shorts,

supported by newly moved to the Northern Rivers


a solo electronic music/stand-up comedy act,

plus local band

Lismore Rudimentary Peni Research

and Development Institute.

Light refreshments available.

So slip into your art appreciation state of mind,

pull on your stomping boots and drop by the Serpentine Community Gallery for the opening of

Modus Vivendi.
