Rain - Installation

The Seam collaboration Melbourne The rain Installation

We are delighted that Rain will be returning to ArtPlay in October 2013! For more details please visit the ArtPlay website.

Previously shown in February, 2013.

Rain is a collaboration between Drop Bear Theatre, The Seam and cellist Edwina Cordingley and has been created especially for babies and their carers.

Audiences are invited to experience the wonder and generosity of rain and explore together water’s elemental connection between parent and child. Carers and their littlest ones are immersed in an intimate, mindful installation space full of surprise, delight and opportunities for connection through sound, touch and performance.

The development of this project was generously supported by Artplay.

Sir Dance-A-Lot

image

The Seam worked with Atalanti Films to create sets for the short film Sir Dance-A-Lot. Written and Directed by Lana Schwarcz, Sir Dance-A-Lot is the story of a knight in King Arthur’s times who tires of Saving Damsels in Distress, preferring to practice his two-step, in a dress. This is the story of “how our knight saved the day, using not his sword, but Classical Ballet”.

Shot in May 2013, The Seam enjoyed the playful process of creating tactile collage sets amidst a collection of fabrics, cardboard, dye and watercolours.

Straight Lines

Straight Lines Are So Good

Egg Gallery, Collingwood

31 August - 10 September 2012

 

A single mark is made, two points are connected, the line is noticed and shared with another. Resonance is felt, amplified, exclaimed and basked in. The straight lines feel so good! They are at once entirely unique and instinctively known.

Each day unfolds from seemingly insignificant moments. Straight Lines Are So Good explores The Seam’s relational art-making, the colours, forms and textures that emerge from being with these ordinary experiences. From one shared noticing, Straight Lines Are So Good saturates us in the felt-sense of things known yet sometimes unfamiliar.

Magic

Magic

House of Bricks

18 May - 22 May 2012


Magic is the space between the real and imagined, what you can’t see and what you can grasp. What you can unravel and what you can weave. The Seam inquires into this space, capturing the invisible and making it visible.


Together

To

Her

Rooftop Art Space

20 February - 11 March 2012


Together is an exploration of lost worlds. It is a searching, a purposeful following of both fragile and resilient threads, a traversing through woven patterns of the hidden and the exposed.

The Installation recalls traditional ways of working and feminine ways of knowing. It embraces experiential processes of recreation and renewal, borrowing resonant objects of yesterday, and allowing new forms, textures, and relationships with both the synthetic and the natural alike.

The work of a unique collaborative art practice, Together reforms worlds of glass, rust, polyester and wire in a melding of shared stories, experiences and a steady searching of the natural world.
