Flyers started with collecting pamphlets from the recycle bins at the Adelaide Festival Centre. I was having a tour of the building and caught a glimpse of two bins full of pamphlets on route to recycling. Immediately I knew I should have seized them but I continued the tour looking for something else. Two weeks later I returned to the Festival Centre retrieving as many pamphlets as I could get my hands on.
My aim is to engage with the materials that speak out to me. Being prone to excess and obsessive organisation of things, I believe Flyers is a seductive and mysterious play on our livelihood. Flyers speaks of sunflower crops, a constellation of pinwheels, while overconsumption and waste will always be looming the background. The tensions in this installation between form and imagination avoid and confuse a fixed meaning. My intention is to invite the viewer to dream, to reminisce and to lose themselves in the aesthetic qualities of the work.
