Deborah Kelly

CREATION: sustenance

Artist Deborah Kelly’s major new work in development, CREATION, proposes lateral, experimental ways to creatively engage with climate denialism. Through crowd-sourced wisdom, CREATION seeks to co-devise the substance of a new belief structure with which to engage the rise of the irrational and its threat to civil society; one that emulates the emotive and sensual allure of faith. CREATION will offer secular society the senses of sacredness, ritual and connection that mobilise religious communities.

An ambitious undertaking, CREATION is being developed around Australia with writers, storytellers, visual artists, musicians and ritual-makers, through the co-creation of songs, manifesto, costumes, moving image works, parables, iconography, ceremonial dance, mysteries, rituals and believers.

For Adhocracy, Deborah will develop her workshop model through an exploration of food and sustenance; working with local foodies and workshop participants to develop recipes and then offering public, shared sacramental tastes.
