Sunrise, Sunset

Todd McMillan and Sarah Mosca

Blue Mountain artists, Todd McMilllan and Sarah Mosca respond to a literary text written by Italo Calvino, Invisible Cities. It is a story about an ageing emperor seeking to learn of the cities in his vast kingdom. The tales are told from the accounts of a travelling merchant. It is a conversation between two people. Stories of whimsy and melancholy. Yet it is a travelogue to places that do not exist. The text acts an as anchor point for this collaborative project, not so much  a description of something or somewhere but more a recollection that is hazy at the edges, shifting in changing light. This exhibition is about sharing tales, re-telling stories, a call and response.
