Embark on an exploration with Double Perspective: A Cross-Cultural Artistic Journey, a touring exhibition with its associated workshop, Shapeshift: Exploring the Art of New Forms by artists Micheline Robinson and Claire Wastiaux. The two artists have been united in a chromatic visual call and response and the dialogue into which they have entered is determined by the creativity with which each employs their distinctive materials and overlapping interest in evoking new realities from fragments of their past and present experiences. A harmonious dance of colours results, which illuminates the complexities of constant relocation, amplifying the voices of trailing spouses or individuals navigating their own adaptation process. With the workshops, immerse yourself in a realm of creativity, introspection and resilience.

Both Micheline and Claire are professional artists with 30 years of artistic career each and 12 countries between them. When they met, they realised they shared a very similar history as accompanying partners, where their art practices and ambitions were compromised whilst juggling with adapting to new cultures, raising children displaced in new environments and trying to maintain their own artistic identity. Although continents apart, their brains documented the adaptation process in similar ways by focusing on light plays and colour, consistent and perhaps stabilising features in new landscapes.
