Pass It On by Nicola Anthony, featured by OKTO TV, At Reborn, Episode 6 (aired 10pm Wednesday 19th June 2013)
In the above video, you will see what the Art Reborn film crew discovered when they made a visit earlier this month to the Displacements exhibition, plunging into the creative depths of 13 Wilkie Terrace to find out how the artists have used, reused, and re-appropriated a house which has spent 77 years as a family home. The space was transformed into an exhibition which layered and interweaved artwork with family heirlooms, traces of the past and the smudged fingerprints of the generations born within the house. The Art Reborn crew were particularly interested in found objects becoming artworks, and so the story of the 8900 found saga seeds that comprise Pass It On caught their attention. They also delved into the creative world of Yen Phang who used old business shirts to create an ephemeral snakeskin-like sculpture, symbolising his own life-transformation to the world of art, from that of a lawyer. (See Yen's interview here).
About Art Reborn:
These days, increasing consumerism and higher standards of living has led to a rapid fire increase in waste generation in cities across Asia. As a result, many artists have also turned their focus to raising awareness of the environment – one artwork at a time.
