(Excerpt from Notation 3 Open Studio)

In March 2020, two months prior to the planned exhibition of my site-specific work, Notation 3, COVID-19 restrictions hit Melbourne and Blindside Gallery closed. In response, I embarked upon what was to become a five-month process, transforming the exhibition of this site-specific work into an isolation residency book-ended by two online publications; Notation 3 Open Studio and Isolation Residency.

Marking time and space during a period of profound global change, this project’s central action has passed. The online publications remain, however, as a somewhat paradoxical testament to impermanence.

This program takes place on the land of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation. We recognise that sovereignty was never ceded - this land is stolen land. We pay respects to Wurundjeri Elders, past, present and emerging, to the Elders from other communities and to any other Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islanders who might encounter or participate in the program.
