An exhibition by our 2017 Lofty Winner, Elliat Rich.
Artifact is an attempt to reconnect with the memories of our collective cells to inform a creation story for Watch This Space. It’s an offering of a new way to think about the beginnings as a community, told through the seeding of a myth.
"Artifact is a temporal response to and sharing of my ongoing research for Designing Mythologies.
The opening will be a time to share the experience with others, the following day I’ll put it into context of the bigger project (Design Mythologies). I’m interested in what you think of it. Where does it resonate? Or doesn’t. What is it missing? Did I skew something in the symbolism? Have you seen the invisible plain?"
We hope to see you there for the Opening and Offering; recognising, supporting and celebrating this important artist in our Central Australian community.
