STORIES of STRANGERS EXHIBITION 

Artspace on The Concourse

29 July - 9 August 2020

What do you see when you look at a piece of art? Is it different or similar to the person standing next to you? Stories of Strangers explores how art can mean different things to different people through storytelling and wants to know what you see through your unique goggles by inviting you (the 'Strangers') to tell the story you see in the art.

A collection of 21 original artworks by Trinity Morris will be presented alongside the stories, poems, and other imaginings of 'strangers' for the public to contemplate, compare, and enjoy. Anyone can contribute a story by going to the website and looking through the artworks or by visiting the exhibition. All abilities welcome!

Due to COVID restrictions, you will need to bring their own mobile device (tablet or smartphone) and use QR codes to access the stories written by strangers as you peruse the art in the gallery.

 

Trinity says "There have been some beautiful stories, poems and other imaginings contributed including a wonderful story by Australian music icon, radio host and writer Tim Rogers. Some can bring a tear, others make you laugh and really look at the art in a completely different way...It's fascinating to look through someone else's lens."

 

A few of the works have been brought to life with an Augmented Reality (AR) extension and you'll need your smart device to experience this very cool hidden feature embedded in these artwork.
