Let us walk. Together. Alone. Quietly. Consciously.
Let us turn our gaze – inward, outward.
Let us pay attention to place. To the natural and built world that surrounds us, hugs us, nourishes us.
Space In Between connects the 23rd Biennale of Sydney locations from National Art School, Museum of Contemporary Art, Pier 2/3 at Walsh Bay Arts Precinct and The Cutaway at Barangaroo, through mindful walking. The paths, like the river, flow both ways; there’s no beginning or end – you can move in both directions and start or finish wherever you like.
This walks series is inclusive and fully accessible for wheelchair users and users of other mobility devices.
As you view the exhibition, walking from point to point, take note of your journeys and soak in the creative potential embedded in the natural and urban environments through unearthing stories of place, both visible and hidden. Along the way visit unexpected locations like the Tank Stream, where place-responsive activations will shift your perspective (up, down, around), and experience the City as new, despite the time spent previously (or not) deep within her belly.
Through downloadable maps (coming soon), interact with exercises and activations that will be placed along your walk between exhibition sites, created by participants including:
- Bronwyn Bailey-Charteris (Sweden/Australia)
- Embassy of the North Sea (Netherlands)
- Julie Gough (Trawlwoolway, Australia)
- Pablo Helguera (Mexico/USA)
- Astrida Neminas (Canada)
- José Roca (Colombia)
- Stephanie Springgay (Canada)
- Hanna Tuulikki (Finland/Scotland)
- Tais Rose Wae (Bundjalung, Australia)
With more participants to be announced.
