… CEMENTA RESIDENCY in KANDOS 2021… Intentions into words … X

Hello again, I hope you’re well, staying safe & staying groovy?

You may or may not know, I’m an emerging artist. Sometimes I describe myself as re-emerging. Either way, I am at the beginning, perhaps some might say, at a time when I’m nearer the end of my life, rather than having my whole life before me. Personally, I don’t much care how old I am or what people might say. What I care about is community. Whether that is my Aboriginal community or any other community. Might even be community of non-humans, their concerns and our human impact upon them. Seems to me, for survival, the Earth and environment, need us to act with urgency and do many things, simultaneously. I think, emapthy is key. Good thing is empathy…

Create NSW generously provided the funding for video production by Justin Hewitson.

Below is a short video, describing the project I undertook for my residency with Cementa, at the WAYOUT Art Space, in Kandos NSW. One of the goals of the project was to deploy my character, Sister GlitterNullius as a conduit for community to identitfy and share their history, relationship and hopes for the future of their town, Kandos. The art is in the character and it is in creating a workshop for a community. More importantly to my work, the art is in, the fridge magnets and what they represent, community coming together, sharing their stories, making new memories in a group that perhaps might not have been configured in another context. The art is not mine, it belongs to the people of Kandos.

I’ll post the longer version, down the track. I might even be brave enough to post the rehearsal video & performance for Cementa’s SPiRiT of 21 online program! I hope you enjoy having a some insight into my practice rationale and intentions. My many thanx again to Create NSW for funding my Cementa residency videos – Game changer & game on! The video work is invalueable to my learning about my own practice and improving my approaches to it.

Thanx for dropping by again.

CONFESS, BE BLESSED… WELL… MAYBE… The Sisters of Perpetual Plastix for Plastix-free Biennale, 22nd Biennale of Sydney, NIRIN.

Collaborating Video & Editor: Jesse Tyssen

Come with me but don’t follow me… you are my children but I am not your Mother. She is saltwater, rain, mountain, bird, reptile, river, fish… She is soil, sky and stars… every plant, plankton & microbe… The seasons, fire, wind… She is Ancestors, our sisters & brothers, human and non-human. Do not confess & seek forgiveness from this humble servant… I too, sin. For I am Sister GlitterNullius, the personification of our collective existence hypocrisy…

Please children, do not beg absolution from Mother Nature… her existence is urgent. Build a many & far reaching spider-web around her… Simultaneously reach out to & for the many, the far & wide… stay near, slow down & hurry …

Your Friend In & Out of Plastix,

A MOTHER’S MESS AND CONFESS… LET’S HEAR FROM ELOUISE

Bless you my child for you have sinned. We are all sinners. Although you strive to be a conscious consumer, your sins against the environment are the same sins against your children’s future. For what we, in this western world have done, what we do now, is the legacy we leave behind. The impact of plastix upon all our children is already detrimental. Your children are not just those that you tuck in at night and send off to school. Your children are also the beings of the Land. The plants and animals also depend upon your nurturing and vigilance.

We all have much to learn and be responsible for.

As I set your penance I do so with a heart that is both hopeful and heavy. The Penance I set for you my child is that you watch the complete video The Story of Plastic with your children and face the questions they ask. Do so in the name of all natures children, human and non-human.

Do so in the name of all living things as equals. Go in a million, trillion plastic pieces.

Your Friend, in and out of plastix,

Sister GlitterNullius X
