A Virtual Exhibition
In-Site, Incite, & Insight

Rather than experience the festival’s exhibition on-site, this year we experience it “in-site” — in a website, in the digital world, in the virtual. The works in the festival this year have been selected with the intention of being experienced virtually.

The artists bring insight to their experiences of the world having changed, how it continues to change and what this change can offer. This includes our growing awareness around mental health, our relationships with both the physical and digital worlds, and how the works can incite us into action. The exhibiting works investigate these themes and more, providing room to engage with the arts in a time when interacting and experiencing work has been significantly impacted. Through these works, we recognize that we are in the moment, in the current, in the site.

IN THE EXHIBITION:

Blurred grey smoke-like smudges.

SELF // ISOLATION
Chelsea Watson

Top half of an individual in front of a multi-coloured graffiti filled wall. They wear mixed textiles of red where their face is covered with a chain mail piece which reveals their eyes.

UNBREAKABLE
Amplify Collective

Black and white drawing of a thin lined body of a human figure with a bird head and thin neck. One arm is a wing where both arms hold a cane each. There are two cross-hatched rectangles with dots

HYBRID PRECARITY
Leena Raudvee

Collage of a graph on the left and a handwritten letter on the right in the background, with a figure above walking away, and a headless figure holding a headless child below. Overtop of the letter is a diagram of a body part nearly resembling the brain. Overtop of the letter and graph is a portrait of a headless figure wearing a button up shirt. This is layed over a colourful rorschach implying that it is the head of this figure.

SZEPTY/WHISPERS: DIALOGUE

Man making "shush" gesture to bird

COAL MINES AND TREE TOPS
Dani Crosby

A laptop in the centre, open to a complicated program. In the foreground there are medical monitors connected to a plant. There is another plant on the right and more in the background. In the far back there is a projection of indiscernible plants.
