Artist Talk: Smell the roses... (Exhibition)

Tuesday 10th December 2019

All welcome. Gain an insight and join the discussion between Larisse and Sarah.

Smell the roses, offers an opportunity for both contemplation and participation – enticing audience to make time to literally experience an art work and connect with it personally. In offering this as an option, Hall highlights the juggle of time. Weighing against other priorities and the already existing schedule, the importance of making time for something unexpected – allowing oneself to step inside a 'painting' and become one with an artwork. (The expected norm traditionally within a gallery setting is to look, however, do not touch or engage with the painting!) Encouraging audience to activate the 'painting', Larisse endorse's time as our most precious commodity. The ephemeral nature of presence highlighted through action.
