Projects

 

Each year Vitalstatistix undertakes projects, presentations and partnerships with like-minded organisations. These projects can grow out of other programs we offer such as Adhocracy and our Incubator residencies; they can be yearly partnerships such as with St. Jerome’s Laneway festival; or they can be special initiatives, which increase opportunities and platforms available to artists.

This year we are excited to partner with organsations including Aphids, Tarnanthi – Festival of Contemporary Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art, Art Gallery of South Australia, and Performance & Art Development Agency (PADA), to offer a series of exhibitions, site-specific and residency-made works, work-in-progress showings and other creative developments.

In particular, our partnership with PADA contributes to the development of five new works and a series of Adelaide city-based showings.

Crawl Me Blood

Crawl Me Blood takes you into a Botanical Gardens at night to encounter the family saga at the centre of Jean Rhys’ seminal work of post-colonial fiction. With each new intoxicating garden unfolds a layer of fiction, autobiography and the real life unpacking of race and gender in the ferment of our post-colonial world.

DUNCAN

In 1903 dance pioneer Isadora Duncan gave her speech ‘The Dance of the Future’, which became a manifesto of free dance. “The dancer [of the future] will not belong to a nation but to all humanity.” Chris Scherer will investigate the nature of liberty, as such ‘dancer of the future.’

IRON LADY

Iron Lady is a performative research project and comedic intervention into the finance district by an artist armed with an ironing board. The work starts from the premise that finance is an experimental playground that peddles in speculation, fiction, and value creation.
