Walking with Intent
Gaffa Creative Precinct, 24 June -7 July 2021
“My ‘Intent’ is to explore the nature and practice of Walking Art; to earn my boots as a Walking Artist. My walks are artistic and political acts that resist the speed, spectacle, and consumption of contemporary society. I walk on roads, footpaths, and designated walking tracks. I walk as a form of transportation, pleasure and as an artist. Often these paths and intentions blur. The Walking Art of this exhibition includes my local, urban walks and longer, durational walks in suburban and regional areas.
I acknowledge and pay my respects to the Traditional Owners and Custodians of the lands on which I walk, on which I trespass.
'Walking with Intent' was twice cancelled due to COVID--in 2020 and now in 2021. In June 2021 Gilbert Grace and I installed the exhibition and two days later the Greater Area of Sydney went into lockdown for the duration of the scheduled exhibition.
