Shaun Gladwell: A project across two sites

An aviatrix, a tonne of water and an owl are an unlikely pairing but with sublime results in Shaun Gladwell's newest work, The Lacrima Chair, unveiled at Sherman Contemporary Art Foundation, writes Gina Fairley at ArtsHub.

'If I wasn't an artist I would want to be an ornithologist,' the celebrated Australian ex-pat artist told ArtsHub, 'I am really obsessed with animals in general, but birds in particular.' While an owl features in Shaun Gladwell's site-specific commission at SCAF, it is a broader narrative of flight and the evocative emotional space that a passage between places can offer, which has captured Gladwell's imagination in this new work.

There is significant evidence that participation in cultural experiences exerts considerable influence on audience behaviours, ranging from building understanding within and between social groups, to inspiring people to act in meaningful ways to change their own and others lives. Yet little work has been done on developing a specific measurement framework that can be used to identify the contribution that participation in cultural experiences and associated audience engagement campaigns make to public debate, education, changed behaviours, social change and policy reform.
