Am really excited to let you know that I kicked off the flipside project today with a two hour pedagogical workshop at primary school Ecole Jacques Prévert, Tourcoing, The children were really engaged, asked lots of questions and we covered topics such as Australian identity, personal narratives, time, image-making technology and feminism. After living in France for four years I found an absence of contemporary Australian artwork and wanted to make a program that opens up a dialogue about emerging Australian practices in France. So I have been organising a program that presents the work of Hayley Brandon, Pirrin Francis, Sally Chicken and Benjamin Crowley. The outcome is an exhibition in the Galerie Commune, Tourcoing the 12th-20th May 2016 and as part of the program there will be a series of artist talks, pedagogical workshops with local schools and a four day workshop at the Ecole Superieure d'Art Nord Pas de Calais.
Setting up a temporary analog sound installation at the EPSM in Armentières. Opening this friday from 5pm. If you're lucky you'll hear something fall.
I'm doing a lot of tests at the moment that involve moving while the camera is attached to my body. One idea I'm exploring is rolling. In this process, my body moulds to the earth and gravity is the driving force, I can't control the composition of the camera or the rhythm of my roll. Afterwards my body holds traces of grass, soil, and dew. The process is both playful and disorientating.
