Artist in Residence /
1st December – 15th December, 2021
Artist Sarah Mosca will undertake a research and production residency at The Lock-Up, whilst working on ‘An Anthology of the Wind,’ a major collaboration with Newcastle-based artist Lottie Consalvo. This site-specific video and sound installation is a major commission for the newly-built Multi-Arts Pavilion MIMA, Museum of Art & Culture Lake Macquarie, Yapang presented in Autumn, 2022.
Air may not seem like anything at all, you look right through it all the time. It doesn’t have much substance, you can’t grab it but you can feel it. It can dry your clothes, crack your lips, and carry boats across oceans. It can pull trees from the ground, it pushes dust across the earth and it carries our voices. There is a telephone booth in Otsuchi, Japan that isn’t connected to a line. It was put there by a man for anyone to use to communicate with those who have passed, he calls it the ‘wind phone’. You can pick up the phone and tell them about your day. The wind carries your message.
