LAUNCH | SYDNEY FESTIVAL | THE ROPES: AMRITA HEPI X ADRIAN PIPER11 January 2019 — 12 January 2019
Cement Fondu is thrilled to announce its participation in Sydney Festival 2019.
In our second annual pairing of an esteemed International artist with an Australian early career artist, this exhibition presents a newly co-commissioned video installation by dancer and choreographer Amrita Hepi with a selection of works by Adrian Piper.
Together the pair explore how the body, rhythm and rhyme carry spectrums of black experience, from self-expression and cultural celebration to political and social turbulence and trauma.
