Referring to its Momentary Shift, Parts I-V

Tiny Stadiums Festival, Sydney, curated by Groundwork

16 – 23 November 2013
(mediums and dimensions variable, please see individual images for details)

Referring to its Momentary Shift, Parts I-V is a series of five site–specific assemblages that explored the dialogue between a static installation and a public space, as part of the 2013 Tiny Stadiums Festival in Erskineville, Sydney. Through collaborating with several local organisations, including RailCorp, The Fruit Village and The Hive Bar, the mixed media works were created to operate as a type of memorial to unsung spaces, within their businesses. The pieces were installed during the first week of the festival and remained a constant between the two week event, providing a contradictory experience to the transient sites as they lingered and gradually altered form.

Tiny Stadiums is an annual festival of live art and performance infiltrating the streets of Erskineville and the PACT venues in Sydney. Curated by Groundwork (Christopher Hodge, Amelia Wallin, Maria White) in 2013, artists included Natalie Abbott, Ella Barclay, Hossein Ghaemi, Jen Hamilton & Craig Johnson, Leahlani Johnson, Bennett Miller, Imogen Semmler, Kailana Sommer and zin.
