Merinda Davies: 'Imprints'

Performance

17 October 2020
11am–2pm

  • Event Cost:
    Free

Imprints invites you to be held (safely) by artist Merinda Davies. This one-on-one performance will take place at IMA Belltower at the Judith Wright Arts Centre as part of Making Art Work.

Imprints evolves over time from an initial installation, to a participatory performance, and after the performance a pile of spent PPE is left as the residue of these imprints.

Davies asks us to consider the Imprints of the pandemic on our bodies and on the environment.

Guest Info
  • Merinda Davies

    Merinda Davies is an artist using performance, movement, installation and conversation to question the current structural paradigm of inequality. Her work is inspired by the environment, human and non-human social structures and the possibilities available to us in future imaginings. Her practice aims to find clarity and connection in the external world through deep listening, observation, and research into the emotional and physical states in our internal worlds. She grew up on Bundjalung Land in Northern NSW, and is currently living on Kombumerri Land in South East QLD. Merinda is currently working on solo and collaborative projects for Gold Coast City Council, Placemakers*, Outer Space and The Walls Artspace.
