‘Witness’ was an interactive installation that was exhibited together with the work of five other women artists at the Mackay Art Space, Queensland, 2009 for the ‘In Her Shoes’ exhibition. The work was commissioned to explore a significant moment in the artists life, which had not been traditionally marked or celebrated.
“A coat has been left hung up. The owner is not present. By doing the usually unthinkable; rifling through someone’s pockets, hidden thoughts and memories are revealed”
Visitors were invited to explore the pockets and interior of the coat where they found interactive personal items and audio works. The works explored the artist’s personal moments of reflection around witnessing the death of a close friend.
