About Neva Elliott’s Commission
Neva is currently working on a body of work around loss, grief and healing.
The work is being realised in photography, text and sound and documentation of performative work. This includes using gesture, personal encounters, ways of doing and modes of being as everyday ‘performance’ while engaging with audiences through personal shared experience and addressing universal human conditions.
For The Dock commission Elliott will continue with this body of work, and will expand it working through drawing, photography, text, and performance, creating a series of ‘sketches’ over the period leading to a distillation into plans for new work.
Specifically for the commission, Neva also intends to create a series of photographs and texts around human connection, intimacy and the everyday which can be disseminated online and directly into her community.
