Audio descriptions of artworks by Simon Phillips in the exhibition, Sense and Sensitivity, with Dawn-joy Leong, 2021. Recordings by DADAA.
Audio transcript: 8 June at 4.05pm. A black and white imageJust off from the centre a skeletal bow emerges from the depth of the abyss reaching up towards the horizon, just above the tip of the bow is the clear horizon line running from left to right of the image, with the misty grey white sky shimmering above, the ground below looks smooth and soft like porcelain bright white grey colours and the bow is harsh and jagged unnatural. This image has a yin and yang feel to it with the white grey tone top and bottom, and the strong dark skeletal bow just down from the centre. Both the foreground and sky give the bow remains a mythical and other worldly atmosphere.
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.
