Second Hand Emotions

Adhocracy residency project


Each year, for Adhocracy, Vitalstatistix hosts a unique artist-in-residence initiative.

Guest Australian artists join us to develop a new project, working with a team of South Australian collaborators for a fortnight leading up to Adhocracy. The work then features in Adhocracy’s public program of showings and talks.

This year’s commissioned project, Second Hand Emotions, is presented in partnership with artist-run-initiative Fontanelle, in celebration of their relocation to Port Adelaide and the epic, multi-sited feminist art festival FRAN.

Second Hand Emotions is a process-driven, queer and discursive project responding to the provocation of ‘love and feminism’, the theme of Fontanelle’s keynote exhibition during FRAN.

Led by artists Mish Grigor, SJ Norman and Sarah Rodigari, Second Hand Emotions will develop performative, documentary and other responses for presentation at Adhocracy and installation as part of Fontanelle’s Feminism and Love exhibition.

This is a significant annual opportunity for South Australian artists – stay tuned for your chance to apply for the residency in March.

Lead artists: Mish Grigor, SJ Norman and Sarah Rodigari

Applications for residents (South Australian artists only): OPEN NOW

Residency: 21 August – 3 September
