On the Edge of a Dream Film Screening


October 6th, 6-9pm

Marinship Studios tenant, Terasu, is hosting a screening of a new film in one of our vacant studios by Ellis Ericson and Andrew Kidman with art by Barry McGee.

“Feedback” will also take place in Petrichor, a solo exhibition by Alex Kopps.

The film will play at 7:30 after a few songs performed by Andrew Kidman. There will also be a Q&A with Ellis and Andrew.

Cocktails by Birdview Distillery and some seasonal food by a local chef will be available for purchase.

About the film:

For the past five years Ellis Ericson and Andrew Kidman have been working with George Greenough on the modern evolution of his Edge Board design. 

Ericson and Kidman are both shapers; the book and film charts their journey as they work with Greenough to personalise their own equipment with a design George has been toying around with since the late ‘60s. 

Shot in Australia on the North Coast of New South Wales it features the original venues Lennox Head and Angourie where Greenough’s innovative Edge designs were tested in the early ‘70s. 

Tickets are $10 per person, available on

Detachment from Craft
The organic, varying forms at play in the artists’ work invite the viewer to discard defined notions of craft. Metal and wood sourced in California and Japan are treated in a variety of ways, blurring the boundaries between artisan and artist.
