29 August – 25 September 2022
BLEED – a Biennial Live Event in the Everyday Digital – features contemporary arts commissions across multiple IRL and digital platforms. In 2022 we consider the potential and problems of borders. We explore the sites of intersection between and within humans, technology, media, history and nationhood, and our emotional, physical and digital geographies. In 2022, BLEED takes place across three cities, online and in person, from 29 August – 25 September.
BLEED Opening Event at C-A-C
Friday 2 September, 5pm – 8pm
Join us to celebrate the opening week of BLEED – a Biennial Live Event in the Everyday Digital at C-A-C. This will be the first of only two BLEED onsite activations at C-A-C where you will be able to experience C-A-C’s commissioned works in person.
Gather with us as the sun sets and imagery of the sky captured throughout Western Sydney is projected onto Campbelltown Arts Centre’s facade for Jodie Whalen’s immersive video installation Endless Blue Edge. Experience the audio-visual installation, Sap 濕 by Chun Yin Rainbow Chan 陳雋然, which pays homage to the legendary Taiwanese singer, Teresa Teng and karaoke culture. The distinction between physical and digital objects and places will blur when you experience the AR (Augmented Reality) Wedge-tailed Eagle and accompanying video work for you can never touch your shadow by Dean Cross.
Visitors will also be able to attend artist talks to delve deeper into the works and the themes of BLEED 2022.
