Photographs taken by Jackie Cooper at Jack of Hearts Studio


Presented amongst flames and molten steel, Sigh was a collaboration between blacksmith, John Wood and musician Vic McEwan. Forged steel, flames, fire, clarinet, pump organs, contact microphones, hydrophones and more. An intimate performance in a working blacksmith’s studio where audiences heard the screams & sighs of this enduring paradoxical medium.

Presented as part of Artstate Wagga, 5 - 7 November 2020
