This event is presented by:
Join Aaron Chapman in the studio and explore his new body of work, A Wet Finger to the Wind.
A Wet Finger to the Wind celebrates and mourns the colourful imagination of childhood innocence by reinterpreting photographs through the lens of a childhood craft.
The Norman Park Substation residency will see Chapman’s photographic enquiries of home(s) reimagined in a tactile manner through a limited palette of coloured perler beads. Chapman will individually place tens of thousands of perler beads (which are then fused together with a household iron) to engender meditative, reflective and domestic acts.
Chapman’s bond to home was significantly amplified since becoming a father and fatherless. It’s these significant life events that inform the developing work of A Wet Finger to the Wind and its attention to home, intimacy, refuge and childhood.
All are welcome to see works completed during the residency and to learn more about Aaron’s work and his process.
