TOUCH­ING ART OF THE LONELY

Cockburn Gazette - - LIFESTYLE -

EL­IZ­A­BETH Bills’ up­com­ing ex­hi­bi­tion is ded­i­cated to the lonely.

The young artist and cu­ra­tor’s new col­lec­tion of work brings to­gether eight artists who delve into their own ex­pe­ri­ences with lone­li­ness through tac­tile sculp­ture in­stal­la­tions.

Bills said lone­li­ness was an is­sue that struck a chord with every­one.

“Lone­li­ness is a sub­ject that is rarely voiced and of­ten just whis­pered about,” she said.

The ex­hi­bi­tion has been de­vel­oped with the help of DADAA, with a free au­dio de­scribed and tac­tile tour sched­uled for May 6.

“This ex­hi­bi­tion is ex­cit­ing be­cause it is break­ing new ground, it’s the first ex­hi­bi­tion in Perth to con­sider ac­ces­si­bil­ity from the inception of art­work,” Bills said.

“Un­der the men­tor­ship of staff from DADAA the artist brief was con­structed around cre­at­ing tac­tile, in­ter­ac­tive and im­mer­sive works.

“To chal­lenge a tra­di­tion of pas­sive vis­ual en­gage­ment, artists have suc­cess­fully cre­ated art­works and a per­for­mance with multiple sen­sory lay­ers.”

For the Lonely is at the PS Art Space from May 7 to May 19.
