Date : 
18 July 2019 
Venue: Bridget Kennedy Project Space
Community Event
Cost: Free

Event Details

The neck, often seen as a sensual part of the body, a site of vulnerability, is also a site of strength, supporting the heavy head, a conduit to our heart and lungs, providing life; giving oxygen to our bodies, and nourishment through the ingestion of food.

At a time when our planet and humanity seems to be suffocating on many fronts, strangled by powerful, self-serving ‘leaders’, Bridget Kennedy invites selected artists to explore the neck as a vehicle for political, social and environmental activation.

Artists include Melissa Cameron (work pictured), Vivien Anderson, Peter Deckers, Melinda Young and many more.

 

The exhibition will be opened by Corinne Fisher, Eco-Justice and Pacific Calling Partnership (PCP) coordinator.

The PCP began in recognition of the negative impact climate change was having on the peoples of Kiribati, Tuvalu, and islands of the Torres Strait. The PCP strives to facilitate links between concerned people in Australia and Kiribati, Tuvalu and islands of the Torres Strait, the Pacific Islands that are the most vulnerable to the effects of climate change. PCP is the chosen not-for-profit cause that Bridget Kennedy Project Space will be donating 10% of profits to in 2019.

Maria Tiimon, Outreach Officer for PCP and originally from Kiribati, is known as a leader on climate change action and will sing at the opening (4 July, 6-8pm).
