The Wellington visual artist and writer Siân Torrington has embarked on a project of many parts to commemorate 30 years of Homosexual Law Reform. We Don't Have To Be The Building is a passionate and embodied research, art and writing project about a queer whakapapa of activism and sexuality, from the 1970s to today. After a series of community engagement events, the major physical outcome will be a showing of assemblage art and writing in the light boxes on Courtenay Place.
With an art practice that has always cradled and nurtured multiple truths, Siân will be looking to express the complexities of queer female histories in this prominent public display. She needs six months to work on this project, and is running a crowdfunding campaign through Boosted. To offer your support and for more information visit the donation web site.
