NEWS DESK Help from above Helicopters have been helping make life easier for workers assembling the towers for the Skylift gondola replacing the former chairlift at Arthurs Seat. The closer to completion the $16 million project gets sees a narrowing of areas for protest. And with planning powers now in the hands of the state government, protesters say they are finding it even harder to be heard. Picture: Gary Sissons

Puppets tell a personal tale A PHOTOGRAPHIC exhibition of puppetry that interprets how disabled artists see their bodies will be on at Mornington Library until 23 June. Organised by Arts Access Victoria, the Avenue of Puppets: Volatile Bodies exhibition features puppets created by artists from Art About, an inclusive art studio. An Arts Access Victoria spokesperson said the work ‘’interrogated how artists with a disability see their bodies interacting with the physical and metaphysical environment’’ after artists got together and shared their stories. The artists formed individual marionette puppets with mixed mediums including papier-mache, paint and fabric. Art About member Elyssa Gunn said each marionette was an expression of the artist’s own

identity and a reflection of each participant’s story. “Infused with tales of travel, magic making and dreams of being just like Bond, Supergirl and ABBA, these puppet-objects took on new barrier-free lives of their own,” she said. Art About is a visual arts program for people with intellectual and physical disabilities designed to support and promote accessible arts practice, participation and cultural engagement for people with disability living on the Mornington Peninsula. The public is invited to an exhibition celebration on 4 June at 4.15pm. RSVP Melissa Banks on 9699 8299 or mbanks@artsaccess.com.au
