When We Meet Again
By Abbey Clerke
Description: Inspired by the global scenes of neighbours singing together from their balconies during isolation, ‘When We Meet Again’ encapsulates the sense of hope that these encounters stir. The musicians and dancers in the artwork are celebrating our ‘togetherness’ despite our separation and looking forward to the day when restrictions are eased and we ‘meet again’. The images of apartments, thankyou cards, rainbows, video conferencing calls and medical and sanitation supplies have become familiar to many of us, and will one day be a memory, captured in our hearts, minds, literature and art.
