June 2018 – Control

Susan Merrick 2018

This month I have been reflecting on the conversations that have happened both during and in response to the project so far this year.

Sometimes the dialogue is heavy, with myself and another Artist perhaps agonising over details or the social politics of an issue. At other times,  it is simply one comment, from one woman.

‘We’re not allowed BBQs’.

Control. Rules. Policies. We know that at times these are necessary, can keep people safe. But what other affects does control have on us. Does it make us rebel, feel like we are going against the grain? Or conform, frightened of the consequences?

This will be the focus of my thoughts and work over the next few weeks.

I am also starting to prepare for the two project events that will happen in September and October. More info to follow in July!
