The Walking Project

15 October – 15 November 2013

For the Walking Project, Elizabeth Pedler transforms Mailbox 141 into the stepping stone for a series of guided walks through the city of Melbourne. Making use of QR-codes placed in the mailboxes, the audience will be able to join the artist on a narrated tour of the sights, sounds and smells of the city’s streets and public (and some not-so public) spaces. During the sound-walks, which range in duration from five to thirty minutes in length, Elizabeth gives directions, shares observations and invites interaction with the urban environment. “By taking members of the audience on a guided walk, I hope to replicate the form of a one-on-one conversation with members of the audience … through the Walking Project I wish to encourage the audience to be more receptive to their surroundings, and pay closer regard to the aesthetics of their immediate environment.”

Elizabeth Pedler completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts with First Class Honours at University of Western Australia in 2010. Since moving to Melbourne in 2011 she has pursued a practice focused on perception, producing immersive and interactive installations. As well as commissions for Harvest Music Festival and Melbourne Fringe Festival, Elizabeth has presented solo exhibitions at Kings ARI and Blindside Artist Run Space. In 2012, Elizabeth received an Artstart grant from the Australia Council for the Arts. In 2013 Elizabeth will be pairing with Jeremy Eaton to present Smokescreen at TCB Art Inc. from 23rd January – 9th February.
