EXHIBITIONS: FROM ONE BODY TO ANOTHER

29 Apr 2017 - 2 Jul 2017 | 10.00am - 5.00pm

Sophie Takách and Fayen d’Evie share an interest in the ways that people, places and materials affect one another. Working with sound artist Bryan Phillips, and volunteers from the Casula community, the artists will develop an immersive installation, casting the movements and responses of bodies as they interact with sculptural works and tactile paintings.

During the exhibition, performances in the form of guided tours will experiment with navigating the exhibition structures, and invite tactile and vibrational encounters with works. The tours will be led by Ben Phillips and Janaleen Wolfe from the Theatre of the Blind. You are also invited to participate in guided tours that will encourage tactile and vibrational encounters with the works. Deaf performer Kate Matairavula will lead the tours in Auslan.

Auslan Tours led by Kate Matairavula
Kate Matairavula will lead tours in Auslan of the exhibition from one body to another at Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre. Sophie Takách and Fayen d’Evie have developed an immersive and tactile installation that records the movements and responses of bodies. The works in this exhibition may be tapped, stroked, knocked, pushed, pulled, heaved and cradled. The artists open up new ways to experience art away from the visual by allowing audiences to navigate the exhibition through touch and other sensory improvisations.  You are invited to participate in guided tours that will encourage tactile and vibrational encounters with the works. Other exhibitions on show at CPAC include Contemporary Still Life and the Head On Photography Festival.

Auslan Tour Dates:
Saturday 20 May, 1-2pm
Saturday 17 June, 1-2pm

Exhibition launch: 6 May, 1-4pm
