Project description| Ground Cover – Nuit Blanche 2012
For Nuit Blanche 2012, XXXX created an immersive environment with the installation of grassy mounds of giant slumbering human bodies in the University College Quadrange. The raised shapes appeared as naturalized features of the landscape subtly enlivened by the faint sounds of breathing (and the occasional snore) that became audible only as viewers moved in closer to the figures.
Artists Bio | XXXX is the collective art persona of Shannon Garden-Smith, Corrie Jackson, Emily Smit-Dicks and Polina Teif. They are four artists who make work marked by a sympathy for serialization and the corporeal. Their interdisciplinary practice employs video, installation, painting, drawing and photo-based work. While demonstrating an understanding of the aesthetic, their work values the contemporaneity of ideas/concepts as they relate to our cultural context.
