Five Western Australian Artists Respond to the COVID-19 Pandemic
A responsive residency in isolation
Art is a sublime state that exists outside the body – a force bigger than the individual, a more-than-human landscape that we each inhabit through our practice.

- What is a responseHow do you go from drag mime to this? To be honest I can’t consciously pinpoint the exact trajectory. After a slow start, I decided that when you can’t generate something from within, you can generate it from without – all roads lead to Rome after all. I started by shopping. After trying on aContinue reading “What is a response”
