Sean Codeiro & Claire Healy - NSW
Working as a collaborative duo for over a decade, Healy and Cordeiro have spent much of their artistic careers travelling and this nomadic lifestyle plays a central role in their art. Works in the exhibition explored ideas of movement and transportation, the practicalities and emotional upheavals of storing and shipping possessions, and the complex infrastructures that enable global mobility in the contemporary era. Travelling often brings about powerful memories of home and the question of what constitutes home today is a major theme in the artists’ practice. A number of works looked at domestic space examining its symbolism, functionality, affordability, construction and decay. Other projects raised questions about what will define humanity in years to come and the destruction that often accompanies human progress.
