“Only we humans make waste that nature can’t digest.” Charles Moore
Sarah’s research project evolves from her fascination with waste: her desire to create orderly piles of it; her disconnection from where it ends up; the permanency of her plastic waste, that is able only to become smaller pieces of itself, like confetti.
Together with Brianna Kell and Cloé Fournier, Sarah will investigate ways to create evocative material reflective of a serious issue yet without moralising. Is it possible, as an artist, to stay neutral? How much of what is conveyed is the responsibility of the artist and how much is that of the viewer?
Utilising various stimuli, from images to found documents, the group will explore this idea through abstracted dance material.
Sarah Fiddaman is an independent artist, co-Director of Sydney’s DirtyFeet and regular performer with the Tasdance ensemble.
