CEMENTA15: contemporary art festival, Kandos, NSW, Sydney, 9 – 12 Apr 2015. Festival directors: Ann Finegan, Christine McMillan, Alex Wisser.

Elizabeth Day’s installation Myco Logic was presented in Kandos Community Centre Hall, 40 Angus Avenue, Kandos, NSW. Myco Logic included contributions from: Alice Fisher, Ellen Riley, Val Morgan, Montana Dunn, Claire Gordon, Helen Merrett, Louise Norton, Anna Gibbs, Sarah Goffman, Leanne Wicks, Kelsey Bender, Anne Bond, Neal Price, Loma Bridge, Delma Smith, Kaz Knights, Sarah Newall, Hope Norris, Sadie Chandler, Christine Treganza, Rose Ann McGreevy, Montana Dunn, Nike Savvas, Perry Combover, Tara Kulla, Denise Jamieson, Nola Farnam, Kiah Rovell, Haley Harris, and Brooke Harris.

Cementa15 offered an expanded program with over 60 artists exhibiting work across more than 20 venues. Artists engaged with not only Kandos, but the regional context in which we are situated. Elizabeth Day’s installation Myco Logic, in Kandos Community Centre Hall, brought together the work of a community-based mushroom-making collective, which embraced fungi’s rhizomatic networks of intercommunicating mycelia as representative of social cohesion.

For more than a year Elizabeth Day worked with local community groups as well as other festival artists to make a “crop” of hand-crafted mushrooms, knitting together these divergent communities. Participants made mushrooms from a wide range of hand-crafts including knitting, crocheting, lace-making, papier-maché, embroidery, metalwork and carving. This “crop” was brought together on a raft of raffia and string “mycelia” in an installation created by Day for the festival exhibition.
