Here & Now 15
Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery, University of Western Australia
high line, 2014, two man tent, fluorescent light, fixings, 105 x 345 x 300cm
Born out of a surf trip to Indonesia in 2014, high line references the artist’s perception of disorientation and euphoria whilst trimming high on a breaking wave to make the barrel. A suspended tent stands in as a metaphor of that experience - a precarious abode of temporary psychological and physical refuge.
