QUEST AT MELBOURNE ART FAIR
Words and photos - J Forsyth
The 2014 Melbourne Art Fair will play host to QUEST by performance artist Noula Diamantopoulos represented by Artereal Gallery. Noula will sit in silence for 40 hours over the 5 days of MAF 2014. A psychotherapist, Noula invites guests to sit in silence and ask questions to be answered with questions. M.A.C writer Melissa Forsyth sat for QUEST while I stalked their intimate moments with my camera.
Noula's presence and approach is warm and exciting, inviting and welcoming and although I didn't participate in QUEST I walked away feeling a lasting connection was formed. Call me a hippy if you will, but hey, I dig it!
MAF runs until Sunday at 5pm and Noula will be sitting and waiting for your questions in her wonderfully open, warm space on the second floor. For more info check out this VIDEO and get on down to the Exhibitions Buildings and wink at Noula (hopefully she will know the wink is from me).
