In partnership with Accessible Arts, Sydney Olympic Park Authority has announced Rhiannon Pegler as the talented artist selected for the four-week residency extended to NSW and ACT artists with a disability.
Rhiannon has spent her life trying new ways to create visual interpretations of her world and this residency at the heritage-listed Newington Armory at Sydney Olympic Park will provide a unique opportunity to continue her development and create new work.
The Newington Armory is a former naval armaments depot that has been adapted for re-use as an arts, education, and heritage tourism venue. The Sydney Olympic Park Authority operates a residency program for artists and has hosted almost 300 artists from 19 countries working across many different disciplines, however this is the first residency specifically for an artist with disability.
“The body and mind are things we can all relate to, and I’m interested in how people relate to their bodies, its machinations, and their minds connection with interpreting those workings to the visual,” says Rhiannon.
