Tempo Rubato was created through an invitation to participate in the Humana Botanica exhibition.


Facilitated by Guy Lamothe and co-curated by Felicity Mark and Marielle Soni, Botanica Humana presented works from a group of emerging to mid-career Australian artists who reference nature within their art; a visual language symbolising aspects of human experiences or expressing human emotional and psychological states, reminding ourselves - as human we are nature.

Tempo Rubato: Working with the expansive architecture of the pop up gallery space the audience was guided through three different zones- upstairs, downstairs, and the descending stairs. Tempo Rubato encouraged a speeding up and slowing down of time and energy in the performing body while allowing the audience to observe themselves and others.
