Catching Breaths at Testing Grounds

Excited to be invited to host Catch Your Breath at the one night Testing Grounds event in South Melbourne in March. Upwards of 600 people attend the regular one night markets with 20 or so artisan maker stalls and a dozen artists.

I don’t often get the chance to engage with visitors and talk about their response to seeing their breath captured and the ideas behind the work. At least 100 people caught their breath, contributing more than 200 breaths to the archive, which is now well over 16,000 breaths. With 3 cities remaining in the Experimenta tour, we may exceed 30,000 breaths.

Many of the galleries are regional and it is a great opportunity to show my work to an audience beyond the mainstream gallery-goer.

The ‘raising awareness’ approach of past works is not necessarily effective at getting people’s attention and these new projects are focussed on either exploring solutions or looking for ways to promote a reconnection with each other and the planet and to put climate change in the broader context of all the problems we face.
