OTHER OFFERING

BY JORDAN AZCUNE

Delivered as part of Brisbane City Council’s Temporary Art Program 2020.

In Other Offering, Azcune asks Brisbane based audiences to voice their favourite colour to be incorporated in a temporary memorial activation on the site of ANZAC Square.

In researching offerings, memorials and visual depictions of spirituality Azcune presents two sculptural formations of colour effected wax as unlit candles in context to the Eternal Flame. The first 100 colours recorded from the public response will stay in order and will be represented equally within the two sculptures, creating a rainbow unique to Brisbane

In this gesture the artist allows a public personality to be voiced in a contemporary and temporary manner next to a formal parade of the Brisbane memorial. Considerate to the site, the work appears to float in the fountains, not touching the architecture.

We continue to learn and celebrate difference.

THE ARTIST

Jordan Azcune

Raised as a Jehovah’s Witness and growing up queer, Jordan’s art practice starts with a fluency in biblical theology filtered by personal experience. Jordan uses this knowledge as a device to reveal understandings on architecture, body, and space with complex, historic, and contemporary readings. Jordan is currently investigating the idea of offering and memorial through materials of bee’s wax, glass and gold. Graduating from QUT Fine Arts Visual Art honours in 2016, Jordan has gone on to complete mentorships with Lincoln Austin, Leonard Brown and UAP. Jordan exhibited publicly at Home of The Arts (Gold Coast) 2019, Swell Sculpture 2017 and 2018, and Brisbane Street Art Festival 2017. This experience to learn about Brisbane’s disposition with Brisbane City Council Temporary Art Program and Metro Arts is informing Jordan’s emerging presence as an artist interested in the public art realm.
