fusion strength '05 - singapore/darwin

24 HR Art - NT Centre for Contemporary Art.
September 16 - October 22, 2005
A collaborative performance was executed on Saturday 24 September (then we went to my house to watch the AFL grand final!)

Fusion Strength aimed to explore collaboration as a tool for generating contemporary creative art projects. For two weeks the gallery became a chaotic experience: a workspace, a performance space, a studio, a lab and a gathering spot to interact, intervene, and perform in.

Curated by Juliana Yasin. Artists: Jason Lim (Sing), Lina Adams (Sing), Juliana Yasin (Sing), Lucas Ilhein (Syd), Elka Kerkhofs (Dwn), and Hayley West (Dwn).

Am I There Yet? is a sculptural installation; 250 metres of thin paper with a single black pen line retracing the journey from Melbourne to Darwin. Each 10 metre roll is connected by a small piece of red thread. As well as a physical piece, ‘Am I There Yet?’ was also a performative piece, the act of drawing becoming a meditative, emotional experience.

'Dear Claire, Love Sonia'

A page of a found letter is hand stitched with red thread onto found shirts. The letter and shirts were discovered in a residential house in Taipei. The P/S is rewritten in the artist’s own handwriting, printed as postcards for the public to take away, and send away.

'Absence of Presence'

Orange industrial tape is attached to a tree’s branch hanging to the tops of heads of a group of (now absent) people; engraved sinkers at the end of each length identify a person’s height and first name.
