Globally we are witnessing the extinction of our world, and yet we continue to fuel our demise, so how do we notice our involvement, disrupt the stasis and rewrite the rules? _this breath is not mine to keep, curated by Jen Lyons-Reid and Carl Kuddell, interrogates how everyday supremacy thinking manipulates our emotions, conceals systemic injustice and sabotages acts of solidarity.
_this breath is not mine to keep is a provocative multi-arts experiment exploring 10 stages of grief, delusions of supremacy and the existential joy of life. Ten co-creative installations, including sculptures, bio-art, multimedia, painting and poetry, form an arts trail linking 4 public galleries in South Australia Sep 2020 – Jan 2021, with print and online publications.
At Fabrik Arts + Heritage in Lobethal, textiles, concrete, wool, multimedia and barbed wire are used to explore denial, blame, despair and notions of comfort.
This initiative has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body, and by the South Australian Government through Arts SA, with additional support from the Adelaide Hills Council, Alexandrina Council, Nexus Arts and the City of Victor Harbor.
