Artist and curator Isabel Rouch owned and ran a gallery in Sydney for a few years before realising that "the cost of maintaining a physical gallery meant I would have to go more commercial, which could compromises my curatorial aspirations and desire to remain independent". So she decided to go rogue, to exhibit on a project basis at fairs and occasionally via the Hong Kong-based online platform ocula.com.

In the tiny Booth C07 at Carriageworks, she's showing the latest iteration of Sydney artist Kai Wasikowski's photographic series Moments of Love and Apathy, this one a kaleidoscopic photomontage of the New Zealand Alps incised by red laser beams. "It's Kai's response to rapid environmental and technological change, imbued with a sense of impending doom," says Rouch.
