Description: SLOW: Relations + Practices a residency/exhibition project initiated by a working group of diverse, local cultural producers. Initiated in 2008 this project reflects a shared desire to discover the subtle and unexpected links between cultural producers over a sustained period of time. In developing the residency/exhibition, the working group’s consideration of proximity and meaningful exchange has taken on the pressing issue of time-slow and hurried, lost and found. Is the time for art practice found on an airplane, in a hotel room, in bed? Is it housed in a laptop or a car? Is it found in solitude or anonymity? In conjunction with this residency/exhibition, the catalogue acts as another platform for collaboration.
Project participants: Lorna Brown, Candice Hopkins, Elizabeth MacKenzie,
Marian Penner Bancroft, Makiko Hara, Liz Park, Elspeth Pratt and Jin-me Yoon
