Ruminating on the task and effects of bracing, Scaffold conflates physical support structures with the human body. Foregrounding strain, tension, and focus, the performance problematises cycles of renovation, collapse, and repair in both the contemporary urban environment and in human undertakings. In a direct response to the choices that have been made in the renovation of the performance site, Scaffold up-ends the usual experience of built spaces, how they are accessed, and encounters with other bodies.

BIOGRAPHY

Kieran Swann is an artist working in combinations of video, objects, and actions. His work ruminates on physical and systemic constructs of the contemporary urban experience; the state of aloneness, cities in decay, and repetitive activity. Heavily invested in process, his work often manifests as sparse and meditative gestures. With a background in different modes of performance and visual art, Kieran is keenly interested in the bleed between forms and artists, and has cultivated this in study at both QUT and VCA. He is part of Transparency Collective, a discursive constellation of artists investigating solo and collaborative practice, and from 2004-2009 co-led the Restaged Histories project, a contemporary performance outfit developing new work.
