Sydney Art Exchange at Articulate Project Space.

Launched as a response to recent and unprecedented Australian bushfires, Wahlverwandtschaften can be loosely translated as Elective Affinities. It involves a feeling of sympathy or attraction towards a particular idea, attitude or person. Here, the whole community is drawn together, and seeks protection, in the face of impending crisis. And in the aftermath, affinities are forged by our desire to help each other recover and to acknowledge that we have entered a new era of climate uncertainty. This is also a space in which to express our concern for those in rural communities who have been impacted by disastrous fires and to consider our commonality as a global community facing the unpredictable future together.
