Bohemian Kings X Swan Song


Saturday 16th September from 1pm

On Saturday 16th September from 1pm the gallery has first dibs on screening ‘Bohemian Kings X Swan Song’ is a documentary filmed and produced by JayneeAM in the early 2000s. JayneeAM is a multidisciplinary artist whose arts practice covers a lifetime with many achievements.

She has lived through many artistic and subcultural revolutions in New Zealand from the 1960s to Australia from 1980s up to the present. Since she moved to Woodenbong and Kyogle area she has featured in the first Kyogle Writers Festival as a street performer where she recited her recently recorded poetry soundscape “Drac is Back” among other poems from the second book to a live audience

‘Bohemian Kings X Swan Song’ was finally edited by Andy Bambach of INYAFACE Productions in early 2023. It took Jaynee nearly 20 years to find the right postproduction editor with empathy for the time and these artists to put the film into its correct perspective. Jaynee video documented the last Kings Cross Arts Guild festival 2004 that featured underground musical and theatrical artists many of whom have since died.

These last commentaries about the gentrification of the Cross are their swan song to the Bohemian fringe known to Sydney’s subculture up until the end of the 90s.
