Elbow Room Residency Series

BURNOUT is a new immersive installation created by Georgia Dawkin and Drew Pardy, who work under the moniker HOT 4 THE MOMENT. Using textiles, video, and performance, the installation compares car racing culture with notions of self-care. In their playful analysis, the artists delve into how the work of many women and creative professionals is commonly undervalued and leads to burnout.

About the artists

Georgia Dawkin and Drew Pardy are the two halves of the friendship heart necklace that is HOT 4 THE MOMENT.  A creative collective, HOT 4 THE MOMENT developed as a way for Drew and Georgia to combine common themes of humour and silliness, and provide a space for play within their art practices. HOT 4 THE MOMENT has exhibited at Eastern Edge Gallery (NL), Neutral Ground Artist Run Centre (SK), designed sets for Lawnya Vawnya Music Festival (NL), and performed at CBNuit (NL). Georgia and Drew are based in St. John’s, NL and received their BFAs from Grenfell Campus, Memorial University.
