The Critical Path/Catapult ‘Studio Exchange’ aims to facilitate the movement of artists between the two organisations and between metropolitan Sydney and regional Newcastle. The visiting artists use this opportunity to invite connections with local artists and open up dialogue around their current practice and new work.
Mikayla Nangle and Alexandra Ford will head to Catapult Studios in June to develop Re/Collect. Re/collect explores how our perceptions of events are subject to repeated change throughout our lives. Through retrospection, we are able to alter, distort or emotionally enhance meaning to our memories, despite being fixed in time. This can be an unconscious or conscious change that follows alongside our personal evolutions.
The Double Bill featuring Mess by Allie Graham & Skip Willcox and Re/Collect by Mikayla Nangle & Alexandra Ford has been postponed because of Covic-19 last year. Allie and Skip worked on the development of Mess at Catapult Studios in Newcastle beginning of this year.
