with every breath

A Silent Dinner in Australia 23.08.19

On August 23rd, 2019, a Silent Dinner took place at the Blue Mountains Cultural Centre, in Katoomba, Australia. The performance is a part of the programming for the exhibition ‘with every breath‘ curated by Rilka Oakley. Photography by Ona Janzen. It was co-hosted by Honi Ryan and Atlas Talisman.

Curatorial premise: with every breath

Being in the present moment is a fundamental challenge in
contemporary society. The rituals we undertake on a daily basis can
serve as a reminder to be present, to be here now. Whether making 
food, washing or dressing we perform multiple ordinary actions on 
any given day. When we pay attention to these actions we become 
aware of that moment. The artists in this exhibition encourage us to
slow down, be still, breathe, reflect and listen. Most importantly
they ask us to take our time.   

The exhibition features artists Sarah Breen Lovett, Cherine Fahd, 
Karen Golland, Anne Graham, Rachael Wenona Guy & Leonie Van 
Eyk, WeiZen Ho, Rachel Peachey & Paul Mosig, Pamela Pirovic,  Julie
Rrap, Honi Ryan, Abi Tariq, Marty Walker and Hayley West.
A Blue Mountains City Art Gallery exhibition.
This project is supported by the NSW Government through

One thought on “with every breath

  1. I am still processing the events of tonight but safe to say that it was a totally engaging journey. A social experiment in communication, self-expression, identity, meditation and ritual. Sincere thanks for allowing me to participate in such a transformative experience.
