Embodied Practices & the Landscape
The artists explore the intersections of landscape/ climate change, embodied practices, interdisciplinary practice and non-hierarchical collaboration. Investigating the concept of fieldwork within contemporary art as divergent from traditional/western/scientific construct, the artists consider various forms of localization, ranging from the local/regional to the global. Fieldwork can involve bringing evidence back from distant locales, or it can take place on the grounds of the exhibition site.
Guiding questions for the exhibition include: what does fieldwork look like within contemporary art? What role does site play in the notion of fieldwork? Considering the significance of postcolonial discourse- as guests on this land- how do we maintain respectful protocol as artists working on the land and what does this mean to our individual art practices?
