Showcasing everything from graphic design to performance poetry to music, ParraNormal is an artistic collaboration by 12 young Western Sydney artists aged between 16-25. You’ll experience six distinctive artistic responses to the people and places of Parramatta. Featured visual artist Harrison Earl describes his contribution as a kind of “melancholic love song” to his hometown.
Produced by the Information and Cultural Exchange (ICE) and facilitated by fabulous folk including performance artist/poet Candy Royalle and design duo Webuyyourkids, ParraNormal sounds like a good chance to witness how one creative medium can inspire another. It’s also an opportunity to encounter the talented voices currently emerging from Sydney’s west.
The pop-up installation is there until the end of September, but if you want to see the artists performing live, then Thursday’s your chance. Can’t make it? You’ll soon be able to see all six works curated into an online graphic novel. Get a little taster here.
