Brisbane Festival and the IMA have co-commissioned three Queensland artists to create new works of scale in the public realm as part of Making Art Work. Hannah Brontë, Julian Day, and Kinly Grey each use text in their work to explore our relationship with shared spaces and modes of creating connections at a distance in our new reality of transformed social relations.

Like many others, Kinly Grey’s experience of mass global uncertainty is one of both possibility and sufferance. Embodied in a single word, endless reflects on a single afternoon the artist spent in a park overlooking the city of Brisbane during stage 4 lockdown restrictions. This new work, presented as a site specific and sensory experience, explores the complex intersection between optimism and pessimism at a time when change is the only constant.

This project was co-commissioned by Brisbane Festival. Brisbane Festival is an initiative of the Queensland Government and Brisbane City Council. Making Art Work is supported by the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland.
