Location: CONTEMPORARY ART TASMANIA GALLERY
ON SATURDAY, 9 JANUARY 2010 at 5 pm and 7:3O PM at the CAST Gallery, artists Wendy Morrow, Kevin Leong, Leigh Hobba and Trevor Patrick, created a performance called ‘Propositions’.
Propositions is an investigation and development of a series of propositions, expressed through dance-performance and music, involving interdisciplinary collaborations, generated from ideas of absence, deep stories and moving stillness.
Through on-going improvisations and a series of creative laboratory encounters, artists Wendy Morrow (dance) and Leigh Hobba (image, sound and text) developed a collection of discreet propositions consisting of combinations of live dance performance, music, sound, image and text.
Trevor Patrick (dance) has contributed to these ideas at intervals through the project from Myrtleford, Victoria.
As propositions they are intended to be viewed are proposal’s that are open to generative responses from other practitioners and theorists within, but not limited to, the disciplines of philosophy, literature, (art) history, dance, new media, sound and music.
Propositions is both a presentation and installation that merges earlier material with the results of a residency with the three artists and Kevin Leong (multi-media) at CAST in early January 2010.
This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body.
The artists wish to acknowledge and thank Contemporary Art Services Tasmania, Wesley Uniting Church, MONA FOMA, Carnegie Gallery (Hobart City Council) and the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery.
The project was auspiced and supported by CAST.
