Tina Havelock Stevens: Thank You For Holding

Times are uncertain and the anxiety is real. But you're sure not alone in those thoughts, as you'll see when acclaimed Australian artist Tina Havelock Stevens presents her latest installation Thank You For Holding at Carriageworks this month.

On show from Wednesday, January 6–Sunday, January 24 as part of Sydney Festival, the compelling single-channel video work was created and performed at Carriageworks last August, in response to the wild uncertainty our world has been facing.

Captured in the work, you'll see Havelock Stevens perform an improvised drumming set from atop a raised platform, as it is wheeled across the space by her co-performer Ivey Wawn — with both artists wearing masks. The ritualistic sounds reverberate powerfully throughout the cavernous space of The Clothing Store building, while the movement of the stage and drum set mimic the chaos and precarity of human existence. A moving exploration of time and change, it'll help you unpack some of the craziness that was 2020.
