AARON WHYMARK // CHIMERA // An exploration of the ‘Ritual nature of Burning.’ Encounter / witness / participate. Be a part of this imaginative and fantastical fire experience inspired by the natural surrounds. A theatrical exploration of ritual and revelation as the sculpture becomes the fire.
BRIGID MORGAN // KINTSUGI MAMA // Embracing the overwhelming challenges faced in her first year of motherhood, Brigid Morgan
explores the transformative Japanese philosophy of Kintsugi by performatively celebrating the act of ‘golden repair.’ This image-based durational performance ritual reflects the beauty of imperfection and acceptance of being flawed, while under the presence of diary entries from that first year, shared through recordings chosen by the audience in an interactive surround-sound environment.
CHAMPAGNE GLITCH // THE PANDORA PROJECT // is an interactive installation work, inviting viewers to reflect on their own relationship to contemporary global issues.
