Art and storytelling transcends peoples, cultures and crises. Yet in the past decade Australia’s arts sector has suffered relentless funding cuts and a consequent cultural devaluation of arts as a career.
Through a rich tapestry of images, Everything Flickers laments what has been lost. All the while, the work searches for the unnameable resistance that spurs artists to dedicate their lives to this pursuit of beautiful expressions of pain and poignancy, nonetheless. Through installation art, dance, live music, and contemporary performance this promenade work deconstructs what it is to be an artist and reimagines it in every beautiful and depraved light.
As we fight to salvage the universal language of art, the act of finishing a sentence will become, in itself, a revolution.
