Three artists based in Tasmania’s north-east, came together to create a major body of work exploring the magnificent Tasmanian Blue Tier highland forest.
The result is an exciting hybrid show, created through their inquiry into this landscapes’ resonance.
By weaving together individual and collective ideas, findings, sound and visual responses; Lorraine Biggs, Lila Meleisea and Dane Chisholm explore the ecological diversity of the Blue Tier forest’s singular ecosystem.
Resonance – Study of a Landscape will immerse viewers in a visual and surround-sound experience; where every vibration, pattern and harmonic of insect life, plant life, land, water and sky, is interpreted and reinvented for the gallery space.
Lila Meleisea is a musician and sound artist, Lorraine Biggs works mostly with drawing and painting, and Dane Chisholm’s practice incorporates printmaking, drawing, photography, land art and digital image.
While Lila has previously collaborated with both Dane and Lorraine, this will be the first time that all three artists come together to create a body of work.
The artists have also created a “graphic score”, an improvised interpretation which brings five skilled music improvisers together. After a single day of musical dialogue, exploration and conversation, they share their exciting collaboration for the opening of Resonance. Featuring: Natalia Mann (harp); Karlin Love (Garry Greenwood leather horns); Liam O’ Leary (drum kit, percussion; Simon Holmes (double bass); Robbie Cameron (guitars).
