Round presents a contemporary documentation of the Snowy Hydro Scheme, exploring the delicate relationship between nature and our intervention upon. The Grand Scheme brings into focus one of the engineering wonders of the world and its impact on various aspects of life in the surrounding Snowy Mountain Region of NSW.
Huon explores the conflict between environmental preservation and industrial development on the south-west coast of Tasmania. With an emphasis on slowness through the use of medium format film, Thompson highlights how such apparent dichotomies effect the state’s socio-political and physical landscapes.
Through a series of video works that serve as a form of public bereavement, Hassan facilitates conversation between women in the capital region about their experience of Australia’s Black Summer. The artist opens up space for an embodied and cathartic experience around climate grief and negotiates what people bring to this unfolding reality within their own bodies.
