Andi Sparks 'HeartBreath'


  • Queensland College of Art 226 Grey Street South Brisbane, QLD, 4101 Australia (map)

HeartBreath is an iterative project, developed through an exploratory methodology focussing on aspects of embodied emotion. Each element attempts to capture an aspect of bodily fluidity and breath: particularly the sense of heart-pumping blood surging through the veins; tears welling and falling; the catch of breath and outpouring of energy; and the steady intake of air creating calmness. Aspects of this work have been screened in exhibition at Gympie Regional Gallery, Crane Arts Philadelphia USA and on the media wall of the Museum of Contemporary Art in Zagreb Croatia in association with Animafest.

As part of REDZONE@RIVERFIRE, HeartBreath was exhibited as an asynchronous 3-channel work that was projected on the Grey st & Vulture street corner of the Webb Centre. At the same time, It was also projected on a monumental scale on the wall above GUAG as a single channel linear work. Spark's work Ambling&Strolling was also exhibited at  the Vice Chancellors private Riverfire function,  projected onto the balcony of Level 7. HeartBreath will return. The multi channel work will have future iterations, installed site specifically in a variety of locations around Southbank parklands.
