(turn the sound on!)
Last September, after working with the Black Dog Institute here in Sydney, I was thinking of stretching my work Hold you heart high and play further with it in order to bring life to it.
The original textile installation, made of pre-loved garments and a ripped off heart, was originally created to help promote mental health and celebrate patients, away from demeaning clichés.
With the current American and global political context, I felt necessary to recontextualise my practice and push it further. This video is a metaphor of our world being fractured and dysfunctional. It symbolises our need of healing it and make it inclusive of all gender, race and generation.
More to come soon, keep posted!
