The Uncontained Arts Festival is back for another three days of fun and excitement for our community. Last year’s event attracted over 30,000 people to the heart of Kogarah and, in 2021, was nominated for Best Arts Festival in the Australian Street Art Awards.
From Friday, 23 June, to Sunday, 25 June, the Festival will feature an array of immersive art installations, live performances, and mouth-watering food trucks.
It has been an absolute pleasure to be invited to work with Georges River Council and Hurstville Art Gallery and Museum to reenvision my work, Dinner’s Past, into a multi-sensory installation artwork that will transform the large foyer of Kogarah Library that leads out into the Town Square.
Dinners Past, is an immersive installation that explores remembrance and placemaking through projection, sound, and scent. By evoking memories of lost and past moments, both abstract and lucid, fond memories of shared meals with friends and family; the noise, the discussions, the disagreements, the quaint and peaceful moments, the celebrations and milestones, the installation creates a sensory experience that invites viewers to connect with the work with a sense of familiarity and remember those who have passed and continue to make new memories with those they love, connect with new friends, and others who are yet to join us at our dinner table.
Special thanks to Jocelyn Fullerton of Cult of Scent for her incredible expertise and collaboration in creating the scent. I invite you to take a seat at the table during the festival.
