The Re-authoring Impulse – Epicormia Collective on now at NRCG Ballina | 23 November-18 December 2016 [ Living Archives Copy]
This month six Northern Rivers Artists inspired by the botanical term “epicormic” meaning new or adventitious growth from a dormant bud, or after trauma have responded to the epicormic concept as a lens for re-authoring through artistic practice after difficult personal experiences of trauma. This artist-run initiative includes artists Julie Barratt, Scott Trevelyan, Jeremy Hawkes, Julianne Zoviar Clunne, Marion Conrow and Paul Andrew. This artist-run collaboration also celebrates ten years of activities at Willowbank Studio in Alstonville and the extraordinary anniversary group exhibition Decade of Catharsis.
On now until December 18, 2016
