Shared Pathways – SeeChange Jervis Bay

July 11, 2018

This year the outdoor sculpture exhibition formed part of SeeChange’s Artpath exploring the festival theme Shared Pathways. The inspired winning work by local artist Michael Purdy titled ‘Tree Spirits’ is described by Purdy as being a ‘part of an ongoing journey – exploring and celebrating life, death and the afterlife of trees.’ The diverse selection of works exhibited in the bushland setting reflected a feeling of profound & deep connection and concern for our environment by the artists.

Akira Kamada a local sculptor and installation artist who organised the exhibition on his property in Tomerong also held a series of workshops for adults and school students leading up to the festival. Kamada encouraged artists to focus on an appreciation of the ephemeral nature of environmental installation and site specific works, including the joys and challenges of working with the environment such as rain, wind, sun and local wildlife.
