Deborah Kelly's CREATION is a collaboration between artists and communities to develop an art work that offers ways to gather and commune - a counterpoint to the natural disasters, plagues and leadership failures of our era. A work drawn from politics, evidence, mysticism and collectivity, CREATION is developed through a multi-venue series of cross-disciplinary projects, public brainstorms and participatory performances.
Central to CREATION is The Liturgy of the Saprophyte, by artist SJ Norman. The liturgy grounds the project in a Gothic First Nations sensibility. CREATION encourages collective creativity and cooperative decision-making, centring marginalised voices in all its aspects and making workshops accessible and enjoyable practices of communal commitment to shared labours and public pleasures.
Art Museum opening hours: Tuesday - Saturday 11 am - 4 pm. Closed on public holidays.
