22 - 30 Oct shopfront RESIDENCY
Just Hold On by Claire Krouzecky
Continuing her romance with the notion of ‘home,’ Claire Krouzecky’s project uses the shopfront as part-studio, part-exhibit incorporating installation and site-specific intervention, experimenting with sound and light - mediums that express time, its passing, and its overlapping in memory. Continuing a collaboration with Darren Cook, with live-broadcast to New York.
cathartic in the showcase gallery
eight artists working together in close quarters and inviting the public to join them in ‘cathartic processes’ – a series of art making activities and workshops, centered around coming to terms with mental health issues through understanding, reducing stigma and practice of ‘letting go’.
Workshop participants can expect to leave having had an opportunity to scream out their frustrations, transform unwanted garments in to wearable art, face their reflection, let go of accumulated junk, and be part of an act of collective storytelling through poetry, written and spoken word.
