'In-between' was an exhibition outcome of a one month artist residency series undertaken by Robbie Rowlands in the country town of Charlton Victoria in September 2014. Artist Robbie Rowlands captures the essence of two sites united by one river through sculpture, photography and sound. Through a series of artist talks and the creation of site-specific artworks Rowlands introduced his practice to a broad section of the community. This engagement opened up new ways of considering contemporary art within the context of the rural landscape and country communities.
The project was co supported by Regional Arts Victoria and Charlton Arts Inc.

To the river
Constructed as a collaborative project with members of the Charlton community this work utilised wooden fence droppers that had been washed away by the 2011 flood. On opening night the audience was invited to select a candle and lay a path down to the work by the dried river bed.
