'cultivating reciprocity (a message for the arts ecology)' (2020)

'cultivating reciprocity (a message for the arts ecology)' (in collaboration with Mary McIntyre) (2020)

Online Group Exhibition

Audio & written traces

Presented by The Walls Artspace, Gold Coast and supported by Outer Space, Brisbane.

Part contemplation, part advocacy, these artist koans are the product of a group therapy session with a collection of Brisbane-based emerging artists and local buddhist somatic psychotherapist and Insight meditation teacher, Mary McIntyre. Together we dove into our doubtings and reckonings with our local arts ecology; its capacity to cultivate artistic health, our capacity to cultivate a healthy ecology, and its relationship to our own practices and wellbeing. They were facilitated and recorded online in our respective homes, together while apart, during the beginning of the Covid-19 social distancing period.

Looking at;


synthesised;

anchor of attention;

trust in the process.


Meaning;

intention;

lived experience;

the immediacy of an idea.


Knowing; slowly;

expanding;

in-between; in the middle.


Nothing is ever finished;

frame; body; ideology.

My day job, a coming together of me

that never stops

even without light

No process, no object, no archives

No beginning nor end

with a moving together in the middle
