We must catch up

Perdita Phillips

In confusing and compromising times, we must take action despite being surrounded by doubt. We Must Catch Up explores the point of talking through doubt and progressing towards action. In this interactive exhibition, participants experienced a time of reflection in a world that needs thinkers and people who absorb and react to the mad auratic flows that surround us. Meanwhile, other gallery visitors were able to observe or overhear conversations of warmth and positive exchange.

Ultimately, this artwork was about three things: the Stirling Ranges – an island of biodiversity wracked with dieback (Phytophthora cinnamomi) – that is represented in the gallery in the form of the paper mountain, undercurrents in society that are found in recurrent conversations, and the act of slowing down and making time to catch up with friends.
