‘Proximity’ was a one-day performance art program for the Inner West Open Studio Trail, curated by Tom Isaacs and hosted by Scratch Art Space, Marrickville. The aim of ‘Proximity’ is to explore concepts of nearness or closeness in time, space and relationship through the medium of performance art. Proximity consists of multiple performances taking place simultaneously throughout the space. The audience is invited to consider the interrelationships between performances as well as their own proximity to the works.
Participating artists: Kate Brown, Bonnie Cowan, Jane Grimley, Tom Isaacs, Katya Petetskaya, Alan Schacher, Scott Sinclaur & Emily Walder.
