Dates:

Opening celebration: Saturday 15 Feb 6pm

Duration: Sunday 16 Feb – Sunday 15 March

Opening times: Thursday – Sunday 11am – 4pm

Adelaide and regional artists respond to the current environmental crisis exploring transformative ways to mitigate the grief and disconnect associated with the passing of a once familiar and trusted experience of the place we call ‘home’. Weaving sound, projection, painting, textile, workshop, and poetry performance, this multi-sensory installation is an antidote to loss, re-affirming life’s interconnectedness, and the importance of our own health and wellbeing for the work that lies ahead.

Artists:

Belinda Broughton, Jesse Budel, Liz Butler, Deb Cantrill, Louise Feneley, Gaynor Hartvigsen, Melissa Hellwig, Heidi Kenyon, Aaron Poole, Evette Sunset, Laura Wills, Jo Wilmot
