Experiments with Integrity
By BIANCA TAINSH
January 24th to February 6th 2020
SUNSHINE COAST, QUEENSLAND
Through her Seedpod project artist Bianca Tainsh will navigate the cultural landscape of the Sunshine Coast, searching for Integrity. What is integrity? Where might you find it? Do you have Integrity in your day-to-day? These will be the questions to activate a reflection on contemporary morality and self-determination.
As the project encounters new individuals they will be invited to join an emerging membership. A league of people, keen to deactivate the manipulative influences of consumerism and the media, to reconnect with the world in meaningful ways. With a taste for the optimism that comes from collective and individual action the league will engage audiences with their communal aspiration to live a life with Integrity.
Experiments with Integrity is another chapter in Bianca’s long-term project, The League for Human Integrity. Launched in Berlin in 2018, the project is a response to the global mood of disillusion, prompted by unprecedented political power swings, climate change and corporatisation.
By creating immersive spaces, both artist and audience become part of a performance that evokes reflection and positive change.
On traditional country of the Kabi Kabi and the Jinibara Peoples, Bianca's Seedpod Residency is the first interstate based residency program undertaken Punctum under the mentorship of Artistic Director Jude Anderson, the residency is hosted by Horizon Festival, Sunshine Coast Council, Arts Coast and Creative Spaces.
