Conceptual Balance

About This Project

artist statment:

Central to my practice is creating site-specific work responding to the built and physical environment. Drawing, performative interventions, the moving image and foremost collaboration is my basic methodology. To deconstruct functionality and feature the absurd, I play with everyday items and situations; humour and simplicity are my tools.

For Conceptual Balance I invited Renate Nisi and Zoe Freny to participate in acts of reverence contemplating the natural world. Through the inversion, we become part of the surrounding rhythm of plants. A text excerpt from this work reads:

During a lunch break, Sky leaves the office with her colleague to walk around the block. It is time for a deep breath of fresh air and to connect with the outdoor world. Sky knows she has to put her head down and change perspective in the middle of the day. She calls it: connecting to reality. After that, she returns to the flat screen of binary code.
