Helen Pynor’s exhibition ’28 days’ and installation ‘Limen’ will open tomorrow at the Siteworks festival ‘MICRO’ in Bundanon. Opening at noon on Saturday 29 September and continuing until late, this year’s Siteworks turns its attention to the miniature and microscopic, bringing artists, scientists and community voices together to think small for a change.
Helen’s installation and performance ‘Limen’ pays homage to the miraculous transformations taking place each moment in the dark serpentine passages of our intestinal tract and to the littoral rainforest of microbial complexity that nestles into its soft folds. In the lead-up to ‘Limen’, the artist collected and cast 27 of her own poos over 27 days and will offer them for contemplation and symbolic redemption in the Bundanon Homestead. The performative element of her work ‘Limen’ will start at 7:30PM and continue until 8PM, presenting a night fire ritual of alchemical shifts where the artist’s 28th day turd will be thoughtfully traced and cast with a new materiality.
