Audio description of artwork by Simon Phillips in the exhibition, Sense and Sensitivity, with Dawn-joy Leong, 2021. Recordings by DADAA.

Audio transcript: 18 march at 9:52am. Black and white image, at the top white grey sky and just down from the sky a close up of thick large bolder like rocks forming a bridge from left to right and underneath a view of the misty horizon and landscape and at the foreground a dark and shadowy bolder ledge, the bridge and rocky foreground give the appearance of a huge mouth opening or yawning to reveal the landscape. The image has lots of dark shadowy tones, dark and heavy grand and immovable.

Sense and Sensitivity celebrates the unique sensorial place of autistic artistry in the world via the lens of landscape photographer, Simon Phillips, and the deep listening of performance artist Dawn-joy Leong.

In a kaleidoscope of beautiful imagery and subtle sound, this remarkable collaboration privileges the feelings of both artists for the world; how they engage with it through what they see, hear and touch; revealing their exquisite appreciation for themes of diversity, balance, place and timelessness.

Exhibition open 17 November – 15 December 2021.
