Under Soil & Skin | Jen Valender

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.
Exhibited in the Norla Dome, the artwork aims to re-imagine troubled ecologies between human-nature relationships through ruptured song. It may be read through a lens of colonisation, feminism, isolation, phenomenology, coexsistance, trauma, loss and life cycles.
How do we discuss difficult things while keeping in tune?
