Inhalare/ breathe upon logo

Inhalare / breathe upon aims to transform familiar landscapes into unfamiliar territories, allowing those who encounter Inhalare works to be transported without the need to travel. In stages, 12 regionally-based artists of NSW have 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 is designed to provide an immersive experience to everyone through multiple points of connection.
