Broken Chord, five channel projection, 4min30sec. Documentation: Wanagi Zable-Andrews.
Working with the premise of a broken chord a fractured composition is performed with a disfigured cello for the fire damaged forests of the Blue Mountains.
The artwork aims to re-imagine troubled ecologies between human-nature relationships through ruptured song. It may be read through multiple lenses that of colonisation, feminism, isolation, phenomenology, coexistence, trauma, loss and life cycles.
How do we discuss difficult things while keeping in tune? This is an engagement with the complex history and scars of a landscape. It positions art as a navigational tool to work through dissonance and to find the points at which harmony sits, strikes or sings.
