Is it Art, is it entertainment, is it a fundraiser? Either way, guess the closest number and you’re in with a chance to win a $300 gift voucher

After packing up her workshop in the early days of the pandemic to bunker down at home, bake bread, and teach her daughter to play chess whilst juggling the challenges of online schooling and pivoting business and personal projects, it occurred to Bridget Kennedy that the participatory/community aspect of her exhibition practice had been wiped out by Covid.

“All my large installation work relies on people touching, picking up, putting down and taking my work. What a great way to spread germs. So how do I incorporate a mist of metho or a fog of hand sanitiser into the concept?” she thought.

The space and relationship between the body and the object is an integral part of Kennedy's practice but the latest brand of hand sanitiser wasn’t going to be part of the solution.

So in a bid to be proactive, she's reworked ‘Just Help yourself Why Don’tcha’, and a conceptual neckpiece (the origins of her love affair with beeswax) into a guessing competition and fundraiser.

In the original work, the participant exchanged $5 for a beeswax ring, often after spending considerable time on the floor trying to work out which ones had gold and silver in them. This time, rather than touching the work, it’s been transformed into a guessing competition: How many rings are in the window?

For only $5, you’ll be in with a chance to win a $300 gift voucher to the projectspace which can be redeemed online, instore, for workshops, remakeries or commissions. (It can’t be exchanged for cash and the person with the closest guess will be announced when all tickets have been sold).

You can wander by the gallery at 53 Ridge St North Sydney, watch the video online (over and over), or just take a random guess. For the price of a coffee, you’ll be helping an artist research her creative practice out of a Covid crisis, as well as be in the running for $300 in contemporary jewellery bling.
