Narrandera-based artists, school children and The Cad Factory have collaborate with exclusive Sydney artist Nicole Barakat to make three large scale textile artworks that celebrate the region’s agricultural history.
The CAD Factory artistic director Vic McEwan said the large-scale Shadow Places artwork will be held at the Narrandera Travelling Stock Reserve from October 26 to 29.
“By holding a large-scale outdoor artwork over four nights, we are trying to shine a light on our shadow places,” she said.
“The artworks celebrate ideas of connection amongst people, and encourage an understanding and recognition of the places we need to survive.”
Lindee Russell from Narrandera Textiles said it was “empowering” to be part of the exhibition’s creative process.
“I want people to think about the connection to the land. One of the key things in shadow places is there are shadows everywhere; when you look at something through a different perspective, suddenly it’s not all as it seems,” she said.
