Mary Parker; Director, Communications & Creative of the Metro Tunnel Creative Program, joins artist’s Kate Disher-Quill and Phoebe Powell to discuss their compelling and emotive project, Surge.

Evolving over months of lockdown restrictions as the COVID-19 pandemic swept across Melbourne in 2020, Surge is a collective reflection of the nuanced and at times confronting experiences encountered by a diverse range of healthcare professionals. In referencing the dichotomy between the clinical protocols of the pandemic and the vulnerability of the human experience, Surge combines the medical with the personal, to reveal and acknowledge our capacity to endure.

Presented as part of Photo 2021.
