aura :: nox :: anima

I didn't think my next solo exhibition would fall so soon after my last one DUNE at Interlude Gallery in Glebe of Oct 2015. Six months later, in the vast and dry emptiness of the Moroccan desert, I snatched a brief signal whilst on the Dune of Reception, notifying me of my submission success.  I welcome you, on the autumnal equinox of March 31st to Gaffa in Sydney for  aura  ::  nox  ::  anima

Born out of existing bodies of work compelled by dry geographies such as the dunes and desert, my residency in Morocco yielded a more geological exploration into death and life cycles, by closely investigating rock and fossil forms. Still inclusive of bodyweather practices, dedication in mediation and movement within this harsh climate, invoked the elements somatically. 

The exhibition is in two parts: Video of long durational performance and movement in the dunes and 2D renditions of rock and stone faces found in what once was a sea bed teeming with life and now a dry barren desert.

Create or Die

So I've hit the motherland ground running. It's been busy and full of good news and great things to be working towards, such as my next solo exhibition at Gaffa (details to be released soon), being featured in Aesthetica Magazine's artist directory Feb/Mar Issue (more info here) and receiving notice from the amazing Sydney based media arts organisation DLUX, that my video DUNE is going to be screened at their next event: Is This Art?, as part of the Spectrum Now Festival

I guess this means more regular blogging and updating social media channels and for everyone who knows me, this will test my mettle, as I prefer to be living grounded in the real world, kinesthetically creating and producing art. But I am doing what I love and am happy to share it with those who have supported me in all stages of my journeys and believe in the message of my work. 

The event is hosted by Create of Die 10 Mitchell St, Marrickville, Sydney on Thursday 10th March 6-9pm

I would love to see you there! 

And a huge thank you to my dancers/performing artists who made my vision a reality. Lauren Lloyd Williams, Kirsten Packham, Angela French and Jessa Holman
