Exhibition 2021: Crevice Communities

Over the past year, we in regional Australia have experienced waves of crises – drought, fire, flood, and pandemic. While other sectors of the economy have received life-saving financial infusions during pandemic lockdowns, higher education has been all but abandoned by the Federal Government. With creative industries and the liberal arts threatened almost to extinction, we in the Creative Practice Circle have turned our attention to what might grow “on thin soil” or “between the cracks.” In a world of hyperobjects – climate change, neoliberalism – we insist on the value of being small (hyposubjects), and of investigating the particular, using whatever materials come to hand (bricolage). We are interested in interdisciplinary inquiry, reaching out to explore crevice communities with scientists, artists, academics and members of small, alternative and/or marginalised communities. While this provocation emanates from Australia, we are interested in international perspectives on life in the “cracks and hollows” of a world in crisis.

This online exhibition, Crevice Communities, opened to the public on December 17, 2021.
