C24 artist @josiecavallaro is inviting you to remake an item from the @kandosmuseum collection based solely on a supplied audio description.

All contributions will form part of PLAYBACK, Josie’s installation for Cementa Festival from Sep 19-22.

nvitation to participate Playback Kandos is an art project that invites you to listen to a narration of an object and then translate it into material form. The project is framed by a recorded description of a selected item from the Kandos Museum collection. Playback creates a space for attention and intention. Through the actions of listening, interpreting and re-making, each rendition will contribute a unique reading of that object, re-told through the kinks of perception and lived experience. Each edition is made signature by the maker’s hand, expressing their relationship to material and social expression.

Playback Kandos was devised for the Cementa artist-in residency program. All works made in response to Playback Kandos will be considered for exhibition at Cementa 24.

How can I participate? Everyone is invited to participate in Playback Kandos Museum. The description of the object includes dimensions, methods of construction and materials used. You can re-make the object using techniques that are accessible to you. If you like to knit, paint, collage, weld, sew, bake, draw or just have a go at assembling things, your take on the project is welcome.

Anyone from anywhere can join. Contributions need to be received by 1 July 2024.

What will happen to my work? All contributing works responding to Playback Kandos are considered for exhibition as part of the Cementa arts festival in September 2024. Arrangements will be made for the delivery and storage of each creation on completion. Just get in touch via the contact page. Contributions need to be received by 1 July 2024.

All participants will be acknowledged as co-creators of the project at the festival and on the artist website. An agreement with each participant will be made to confirm whether they would like their work returned to them after exhibition and how they would like to be acknowledged If you have any questions about participating please make contact here and I will get back to you.
