Together Brisbane artist-run agents Jay Younger, Lehan Ramsay and Paul Andrew formed the documentary-style collaboration AXIS Art Projects in the winter of 1987. It was an evening of combined merriment and vehement spleen venting discontent about being “emerging” artists living and working in Joh Bjelke’s Brisbane, induced, for the greater measure, by a shared round of rebel rousing “Altered Manhattans” on the fairy lit verandahs of a ramshackle Queenslander somewhere in dark Milton.
AXIS (Art X-tremists International Syndicate), was directly motivated by the guerrilla impulse evident in the art scene throughout the 1980s, our project was intervention collaboration designed as antidote to many of the mainstream and outdated assertions and “grand narratives” prevailing at the time…:
