Belconnen Art Centre
In collaboration with Louise Curham, Michele Elliot, and Sue Healey
9 June – Sunday 5 July 2015
Exhibition opened by Gordon Bull
Slowing Down Time is a process-based collaborative project created by the interactions between four artists over the course of an exhibition period. The four artists, Michele Elliot (textiles/ sculpture), Louise Curham (film art/ archives), Sue Healey (choreography/ dance film), and Jo Law (media art) share an attentiveness to materiality, everyday gestures, and their poetics.
This exhibition at Belconnen Art Centre is the fourth iteration of the project. Previously in 2014, it was exhibited at Articulate Project Space and University of Wollongong. Exploring the premise of slowing down time, the artists respond to the specificities of the sites by first mapping the architectural, geographic, and social space through drawings, movements, and moving images. In each iteration, the artists converse with traces of past habitation and creations left behind in the space by the preceding artist(s) through practice. Over a designed schedule (that allows one artist to occupy the site at one time, or a number of artists working collaboratively), the space transforms, producing a different conversation.
