AN UPRISING OF DREAMS
17 August - 24 August 2023.
Arts House Melbourne as part of NOW or NEVER FESTIVAL
"An immersive art intervention of sound healing, projection art, guided meditation, and collective rest led by Nap Bishop, Tricia Hersey. ‘The body is a site of liberation’ is the second tenet of the Rest is Resistance framework, and the inspiration for An Uprising of Dreams. Immersed in sound, moving image, and guided meditation, Tricia Hersey invites us into the ‘Dream Space’ stolen by grind culture’s constant need for labour. The experience proves that rest is not a luxury, but a human right and a deliberate rebuking of the oppressive structures that are snatching our humanity. The Nap Ministry is founded on justice, a politics of refusal, and deprogramming from the hustle that capitalism and white supremacy demands. An Uprising of Dreams is resistance in action, a chance to connect with the wisdom of our bodies in a place of slowness and care."
Pham operates as the collaborating artist for this large-scale immersive installations, producing 11 projections and 2.5 hours of sound design. She collaborates with Tricia Hersey, Helen Hale and the Centre for Projection Art.
