A Thread of Red Between Us

an artist talk by Chuyia Chia

In ‘A Thread of Red Between Us’, the artist becomes an agent interacting, connecting and threading together people from place to place. Different approaches are used, including observation and research, which permit understanding and sensitivity to different political, social and cultural contexts. This time-based project has accumulated people’s histories, emotions, sentiments and places. The project has travelled and connected people from Mexico, Italy, France, Sweden, Czech Republic and Cameroon.

Date & Time: 12 February 2014, 7:30pm
