Earlier this month QACI Visual Arts Educator Zoe Porter participated in the inaugural Brisbane Art Design (BAD) Festival.

An initiative of the Museum of Brisbane (MoB) the festival takes place between 10 - 26 May in various locations around Brisbane with exhibitions, performances, talks, art tours, workshops and open studios, all featuring Brisbane Art Design.

On the 11th of May Zoe performed in the carpark / laneway adjacent to Onespace Gallery on Gladstone Road where she performed her Sea Oddities, a transformation to an immersive, surreal and otherworldly space.

Sea Oddities was a collaborative performance work that combined art, circus, contemporary dance and sound to explore liminal zones and notions of becoming-animal, highlighting our complex human relationships with the animal and non-human world.

For this performance and mural, Zoe has specifically drawn upon aquatic imagery from the small coastal town of Toba, Japan where she recently undertook a short residency. This performance and mural is influenced by the Ama’s fishing practices, rituals and relationship to the natural world.

To immerse yourself in the festival and to find out more, visit Brisbane Art Design.
