THE SPACE THAT EXISTS BETWEEN EXISTENCE / BIANCA BILLY RAFFIN & REBECCA RIGGS-BENNETT
THE SPACE THAT EXISTS BETWEEN EXISTENCE is a collaboration between Boorloo/Perth-based sound and spoken word artist Rebecca Riggs-Bennett, and Naarm/Melbourne-based visual artist Bianca Billy Raffin. Inspired by present experiences of isolation across borders, the space that exists between existence broadly explores the concept of distance and how the current global context has warped and distorted perceptions of time. Produced by two artists who have never met in person, working across two time zones, the concepts of distance and temporality are inherent to the fabric of the work. THE SPACE THAT EXISTS BETWEEN EXISTENCE invites the viewer to step into the day-to-day experience of a figure, whether that be their own or someone else’s, as they encounter the hyperreality of the new normal.
