Alison Shirley’s art book, ARCHIVAL is a photographic and poetic accompaniment to her creative work within the course of Honours Fine Art, Dance at VCA in 2020.
Her research focuses on embodiment and memory – how we hold our histories and our stories in our bodies.
The work explores the patterns, perspectives and landscape of memory and its elusive nature.
Where it has not been possible to work with other dancers, Alison has turned to nature for movement, inspiration and insight into these themes.
This art book reminds us to take in the beauty that surrounds us and indulge our senses in nature wherever we can. Dive in.
