Gertrude Contemporary Art Spaces
Melbourne 2007
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Throughout October, studio 12 was utilized as a workroom in which a series of props were installed and incorporated into processes involving materially-oriented drawings and choreographic sequences.

Melbourne architect Daniel van Cleemput was invited to engage these props in a series of experimental collaborative process. Hester and Cleemput worked with the props in order to explore the possibilities for generating a series of spatial designs for a future built project.

Concurrently, artist-performer Jude Walton was invited to engage the same series of objects. Working from the installation at a particular phase of its development, Hester and Walton generated a score which was then developed into a sequence of movements/actions and working towards a multi-faceted choreography for video.

Provisional Devices For The Production of A Propositional Living Space was positioned as a work-in-process for the generation and development of choreographies, drawings, constructions and videos through a series of one-to-one collaborations.
