Campbelltown Arts Centre has partnered with Sydney-based online arts platform Running Dog to commission five written pieces that respond to the themes of the BLEED lead projects. As independent creative investigations into the rich conceptual ideas behind the artist works, these Echo responses bring new perspectives to the BLEED primary program.
Artist and academic Jacqui Shelton will write a ficto-criticism piece responding to the themes of Angela Goh and Su Yu Hsin’s Paeonia Drive.
- Presented by Campbelltown Arts Centre as part of BLEED 2020.
- Writer: Jacqui Shelton
- BLEED is supported by Campbelltown City Council through Campbelltown Arts Centre and City of Melbourne through Arts House.
