Jordan Edge & Paddy Richardson create a durational performance developing abstract spiritual architecture, symbolism and language through paint, communication and sonic composition. The artists will spend 7 days in a shipping container in our backyard together dressed in ritual costume, the space will begin completely white and transform over time. Continuous vocal chants and electronics will enchant the space whilst architectures are painted onto the walls of the container. All of the processes will be improvised in-situ.

Paddy and Jordan have been developing their practice together through improvised painting and sound making, using their bodies, mark making, diagrams and essence to bring their ideas of spirituality to life. What does it mean to express your vision of an unseen universe with another?
