WAM March 16-17 MIRIAD
Philippa Jones, recent participant of the Elbow Room Artist-in-Residence program at The Rooms, has created a wild exhibit as a result of that residency, called MIRIAD. During a series of expeditions that Philippa led to the mythical island of Miriad, members of the public adopted roles ranging from geologist to shaman, gathering 'evidence' to support imagined truths. The resulting objects, images and conjectures have been interpreted by Phillipa, all culminating in an installation that plays with imagination and truth, the scientific and the subjective. Host Mack Furlong spoke with Philippa Jones at The Rooms.
