Jane Anderson (Noosaville) will work with a collaborative team of early-career Sunshine Coast artists to undertake The Dancer Project as part of a site-specific body of experimental work during a Project 24 residency at 2nd Space in Nambour.
A Maree uses multi-media and digital processes, to connect people in response to potent social and environmental issues. Mira Chorik is an award-winning songwriter and producer who investigates loss and remembrance in performing art installations and the creation of participatory group experiences using mark-making, writing and music.
Exploring the absence and presence of the body and the complexities between public and private face, the final body of multi-disciplinary work for The Dancer Project will include: a performance art piece involving a local Sunshine Coast dancer making impressions on ink-loaded canvas with improvised live music playing as her body moves with tulle, a film installation with behind the scenes footage and music video documentation of the performance, and an exhibition of the experimental printmaking piece and film.
Jane Anderson’s creative practice stems from a lifelong passion for embroidery and textile crafts and centres on historically invisible forms of women’s labour. She explores memory and time through cyanotype processes where ghostly impressions are reconstructed and deconstructed within the warp and weft of the textiles.
