As a result of COVID-19, our mobility has been restricted to our immediate environments. We find ourselves oscillating between our vast internal world of thoughts and feelings, and our limited external world of sites, sounds and objects. This year’s annual Cedar Ridge Creative Centre and Doris McCarthy Gallery Student Exhibition, inside & out explores how our experiences of self and the environments we traverse have shifted as a result of quarantine. How do we navigate feelings of love, loss, grief and longing, in isolation? How do we cope with sudden change? The artists in this exhibition invite you into their neighbourhoods, homes, minds, and hearts to experience the multi-layered stories of their existence during this time. In these exchanges, in the fostering of connection, is the power to transcend the distance between us, both inside & out.
