The Holy Rock | Jake Parker and Rumpa Paweenpongpat

The Holy Rock | Jake Parker & Rumpa Paweenpongpat 

Opening: Tuesday 18 Feb, 6-8pm

Duration: 18 - 29 Feb 2020

This is a journalistic inquiry into the twisted, just, wicked, and beautiful mind of Rock. With unprecedented access, we follow Rock through the moments in which Rock lives in this otherwise ordinary Rock's extraordinary world. We will leave no stone unturned, but what about the rock?

This is a story of life in the moments that are holy; the holy moments. No rock is who they are without where they were and a rock is nothing without where it was, when and what.

This expansive story will be presented to the masses in film and in text and if we are lucky, the chosen rock will even be in attendance. No signatures.

The Holy Rock is a collaboration between two rock hoarders. This is a rock friendly space, bring your rock along.


Rumpa Paweenpongpat is a Thai artist based in Sydney. She explores the spontaneity of hoarding through found objects and their remnants. Through Marie Kondo's concept of "sparks joy" and Jane's Bennett theory that objects have lives of their own, Rumpa's installation explores the moment of sparks between the artists, audiences and objects.

Jake Parker is a multidisciplinary Australian artist based in Sydney. He is currently undergoing a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Honours) at UNSW Art and Design. He has shown works at Kudos Gallery in the Kudos Awards, 2018, and in the UNSW Annual, 2018. Jake explores fluidity.

AD Space acknowledges and pays respect to the Gadigal people of the Eora nation, the traditional custodians of the land on which AD Space is built, operates and creates.
