A few photographs of my garment Limitandi in the opening dance performance of the Mandurah Wearable Art Showcase.
Thank you to dancers from the DTX dance studios - I hear it was a spectacular performance, and thank you to photographer Stephen Heath for capturing this moments on camera.
Congratulations to all the artists, performers, staff and personnel involved in this years showcase. I very much enjoyed looking at the photos from the night and hearing about how wonderful it was!

Made as a performance dance piece ‘Limitandi’ expresses the idea that wherever we go we’ll take our perceived barriers with us when they are born of our own limiting thoughts. In this instance, the very process of trying to make the garment informed its conceptual development as I constantly found myself pushing through negative self-talk about my capacity as a maker. In the final design repetition, line and negative space have been used to convey the concept of personal barriers created by limiting thoughts. This garment is made from salvaged and recycled materials including electrical cable and nylon cord.
