"Yesterday, upon the stair,

I met a man who wasn't there!

He wasn't there again today,

Oh how I wish he'd go away!”

Released on the anniversary of the first Coronavirus related death in Western Australia, Antogonish is a series of audiovisual works reflecting on how COVID19 not only affected the world, but the sustained and ongoing effect is has had on the arts community in Australia. Filmed in July 2020, whilst galleries and theatres were nationally banned, the bare walls and barren insides of the Geraldton Regional Art Gallery tells its own experience.
