Curated by Paul Gazzola in association with OSCA. A project commission by the City of Onkaparinga. 14 Oct to 4 Nov 2017
SUE was a creative festival of performance based interventions that explored how innovative art events within outer suburban locations, spaces not normally associated with contemporary arts practice, can produce fleeting moments of difference, interest and intrigue to daily routines.
“It’s beautiful, the simplicity of it brings you right into the centre of everything – breath, connection, the beat of life. It’s quite profound” TRIO, Willunga Farmers markets
SUE explored the curatorial themes of the unexpected, wonder and play to open-up a fluid and playful space for artistic strategies that would surprise, startle and astonish the public through uncommon and extraordinary activities. The diversity of sites offering the artists and curator alike a fertile space for experimentation and innovation within form, practice and content.
“I thought the event was such an incredible creative way to engage young people with art and community, it is so great for all these young people to come together and experience different ways of thinking together”. TTTSCT, Triggs two car park
SUE negotiated how the temporality of unexpected performance based interventions can add another creative dimension to public art strategies that explore and celebrate the diversity of culture, community, geography, history and land in the area.
“Oh, it’s an art work! Great! I thought there was a gas leak”. SURVEY, O’Sullivan Beach Rd
