House Work takes audiences on a walking tour through the private spaces of artists’ homes, in the inner city suburbs of Redfern and Waterloo. Each household of artists will create a performance or installation that subtly transforms their domestic environment for one day only, inviting the audience in to experience these reconfigured personal worlds. Through this series of exchanges, the domestic sphere of the ‘home’ will become a site for artistic practice and dialogue, blurring the boundaries between art and life.
WALK is a season of walks, promenades, marches and strolls in and around Sydney taking Performance Space’s program onto the streets and into the venues of partner organisations, opening up opportunities for artists to engage with new sites and audiences.
Artists: Lucas Abela, Ella Barclay, Ben Corbett, Nicholas Coyle, Keg de Souza, Alice Gage, Dara Gill, James Harney, Shane Haseman, Julia Holderness, Henry Kember and Rosealee Pearson.
Large groups of tape rolls go through a long process of development and degeneration. The extremely slow paced life of these objects is being revealed within an isolated space where everything starts from a symmetric composition. From this orderly state deviations and differences in behaviour slowly become visible through the force of gravity. Resulting in unpredictable shapes and movements that somehow feel familiar.
