The Tamworth Textile Triennial opens on 15th August at Tamworth Regional Gallery. www.2ndtamworthtextiletriennial.com
Anita Larkin has been selected for this exhibition and has made a three metre long collaborative musical instrument from found objects and felt for the show. It will be played at the opening and hopefully at each venue it tours to. The 2nd Tamworth Textile Triennial follows a rich cultural heritage in the promotion of textile practice and excellence in Australia. Cecilia Heffer, guest curator, has selected twenty-two artists from around Australia to explore the theme of collaboration. Larkin says “I wanted to make the artwork itself a collaborative thing – and so it seemed perfect to use the idea I had had for along time to make a musical instrument that required collaboration of three people to play a composition written for it. I have called the work ‘The Breath between us’ Thanks to musicians Mark Holder Keeping and Richard Robinson this idea is now a reality!” Here you can listen to “The breath between us” After the show in Tamworth the exhibition will travel for two years to nine different galleries around Australia.
A fantastic residency. Great for someone wanting to gain community art experience:
