Audio transcript: 7 December 2020 at 11:34am. Colour image, a birds eye view of the ground in tones of white, orange, orcer Earth colours. Top left and travailing down from the centre to the bottom left white salt fanning out like water hitting the shore line and receding away with the tides, just of from the bottom left and half out to the middle misty white salt fades like clouds as if trying hard to reach back and join the receding and fading salt spray with hair line cracks forming in the dried out areas. The bottom right bright earthy orange that starts fading out at the centre in lighter orange and white misty tones that fade away like water leaving the sand but leaving details of the direction it travels in.
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.
