Episode 6 – Bloom
Following on with the Unbroken Land 2020 water themed works comes Bloom. After the rain, the inevitable new life blossoms out from the red earth. This episode is a stop motion animation of chalk artwork created by Alice Springs/Mparntwe based artist, Sarah Cook. A stunning visual delight; this episode illustrates the growth of new life emerging from the desert landscape.
Sarah is a Performance and Visual Artist who has worked alongside communities in far-flung regions such as remote areas of Madagascar, Costa Rica, Central Australia and Arnhem Land. She is well known for her leading-edge social circus program with her company Circosis Circus, and her vibrant large-scale chalk art installations.
