Activate your community’s architectural sites, with a site-specific project by five artists who respond through sculpture, video, sound, live art, humour and interactive installation, to explore the potentially endless history of connectedness to each place.

Description:

Audience perspective
The space that binds us is a collection of visual art installations and performances, that explores the historical aspects of the town during an Arts festival.Each site specific art installation uses memory, archive materials and cultural reference as part of their armature. The artists response inhabits these spaces as a form of enquiry and activation; through sculpture, live art, humour and pop culture,the potentially endless history of our connectedness is explored. Witness your community and visitors come together to share a new common ground as it unfolds within your local iconic structure.
Presenter perspective
The spaces that bind us develops new site responsive works for 4-5 historic buildings in your township. The buildings are chosen for their thematic relevance and accessibility. Each project artist will visit during a 4 weekend residency, and creatively respond to one of site. This process creates art experiences relevant to your community.

Such an engaging & respectful way to evoke the history of a place
