Inhalare/ breathe upon logo

Inhalare / breathe upon aimed to transform familiar landscapes into unfamiliar territories, allowing those who encounter Inhalare works to be transported without the need to travel. In two stages, 12 regionally-based artists of NSW explored natural environments close to home to develop soundscapes, writings and visual responses capturing deep connections and hidden layers, allowing our imaginations to explore those environments that sustain us during times of restricted movement. The exhibition was designed to provide an immersive experience to everyone through multiple points of connection.

The exhibition

Inhalare / breathe upon
15 May – 16 June
SPACE, Coonabarabran NSW

Audio Descriptions, audio recordings of the texts and other supports were available in the gallery via headsets or through a QR code-accessed webpage.

Jason Richardson / Evelyn Alvarez
Kim V. Goldsmith / Amanda Donohue
Andrew Hull / Libby Wakefield
Danja Derkenne / Carol Archer
Anna Glynn / Vicki Luke
Greg Pritchard / Clementine Belle McIntosh

100% of survey respondents rated the exhibition either good or excellent
84% of survey respondents said accessibility elements allowed for greater connection with the artworks

An in-gallery survey was conducted as part of the Regional Arts Fund Cultural Tourism Accelerator grant awarded to the marketing of the exhibition.
