Unseen Trails - Traces of Journeys Made Visible
This exhibition is a collaboration between artist Alan McIntyre, Crossing Countries, and the children & learners at Bobbi Bear and Mason Lincoln Special Needs School in South Africa.
About Unseen Trails - Traces of Journeys Made Visible
Sorry, but this event has been and gone!
The overarching theme of the exhibition is how people navigate their environment and what they leave in their wake.
The artist, Alan Macintyre and Jean Cathro (founder of Crossing Countries) worked together on White Stick Trails as part of Alan’s developing practise as an artist with progressive sight loss. Alan wanted to capture impressions of his emotional and sensory experience as he navigates his environment and to incorporate these into his art practice. He is reliant on the signals from his white stick and by taping a marker pen to it he was able to make his journey visible. His other works, Dream Walks explore journeys through nature.
Crossing Countries adds an international perspective to the exhibition as it provides opportunities for disabled and non-disabled people to volunteer together. This summer they took the idea behind Alan’s work to Bobbi Bear (a human rights organisation who help sexually abused children) and Mason Lincoln Special School in Umlazi Township, Durban, South Africa. The result is Imizwa Yobicuko: The Pulse of Creativity. We expect visitors to participate in their creative process by touching their tactile pieces and leaving their own fingerprints on the work.
Venue: Gallery 3, St Margaret's House
