Main Hall, Petersham Town Hall

Tickets not required

Without a Trace, a captivating performance art piece conceived by artist Kenneth Lambert, seamlessly merges the ancient art of sand drawing with the modernity of robotic technology. The performance comprises two distinct phases: the creation of an intricate, abstract sand drawing, symbolising the rich tapestry of community narratives and memories, and its subsequent erasure by a choreographed fleet of robotic vacuum cleaners.

Set against the backdrop of Petersham Town Hall, a beacon of local heritage and culture, Without a Trace becomes a reflective journey into the heart of communal memory, history, and the evolving nature of human interaction with technology.
