Under spells of temporal stasis time ceases to flow and conditions becomes fixed - all body functions cease, and no force or effect can be of harm. A spell enacted elicits a moment - where pure presence is all there is – hovering as a gasp between infinite temporal dimensions, densities, tensions and patterns of disturbance.  

Exploring residual energies of materials, ecologies, landscapes and site specificity, Brooke Stamp and Anna McMahon work between a visual art and choreographic logic to explore a multiplicity of embodiments unhinged from time and entropy. For Brooke and Anna, Spells of Temporal Stasis is a process, performance and installation in fixed/flow, it pursues an energetic return to Brooke’s early life on the Gold Coast, their current collaborative dialogue between London and Sydney, and various site based rituals and scores that will take place between them, a Sydney Sandstone Quarry and Miami GC in the lead up to the exhibition.

Opening Saturday 6 May, 5 - 8pm. There will be a performance on opening night.
