alex rinsler [uk] in residence: 8 feb – 8 mar 2017
dr keith armstrong [qld] and steve berrick [wa] in residence: 20 – 24 feb 2017
we are gearing up to welcome alex rinsler , a public artist and producer based in the uk and working internationally. he makes large-scale work that focuses on communities, most of which gets burned in the end. for the last year he has been creative lead for blackpool illuminations, arguably the world’s oldest and greatest free light show, and he started the lightpool festival there to be a celebration of light and fire. he’ll be here in perth from 8 february to 8 march to explore what might be possible with pvi collective. you can check out an interview with him here, from our friends at situate art in festivals.
and hot on his heels will be dr keith armstrong and steve berrick. while we work extensively with steve berrick as our associate artist, this time he’s working with dr keith armstrong and david finnigan on are we the one?, a collaborative, performative and relational experience for two people, loosely woven together by a custom digital phone app. we’ll be consulting with them on this immersive app-based work and helping them test it. you can see more about the work, the team, and its previous outings here.
