a pagan day at the mca

a pagan day at the mca


just by accident i happened upon the Wangechi Mutu exhibition currently 'living' at the mca.

a primal, inventive, transformative, animistic
and thoroughly beautifully dark and bright experience.

 “Link”   Seal Rocks NSW

Balancing pebble in gap between large boulders linking 3 elements – a bridge.
Became exciting with waves rushing in and the possibility of collapse –high  emotional engagement.
How long will it last ?
Small area describing monumental elements of destruction and life.

15mins to make - lasted till high tide

heart 2 heART workshop

Posted by Shona on June 01, 2013

heart 2 heART workshop


Today, in extremely challenging weather conditions,3 teenage girls and 2 support women from the heart to heART project
fearlessly and with much enthusiasm participated in a 'COLLABORATION WITH NATURE" workshop @ The Farm in Cape Hawke.
We managed a few outdoor exercises before 80km winds drove us inside the barn to complete a work of their choosing.
It was decided to make a yin/yang heart as a group. We continued with the material theme of the day which was
'alive and dead'. The outcome was testament to  how a little courage ,curiosity and creativity can turn a challenge
into an opportunity. It was a great day and was filmed as part of a documentary following this groups heart to heART
journey. I felt priveleged to be part of it. GO GIRLS!
