‘REWRITING THE SCORE’
Alexander Boynes, Mandy Martin & Tristen Parr
13 April to 14 July 2019
Gallery 5, Latrobe Regional Gallery
Exhibition Celebration: Friday 10 May, 6pm to 8pm
Alexander Boynes, Mandy Martin and Tristen Parr have collaborated on a new 12 metre installation for ART+CLIMATE= CHANGE 2019 at Latrobe Regional Gallery titled Rewriting the Score. It incorporates painting, video and sound to address energy transitions occurring in the Latrobe Valley at the current time.
Mandy Martin’s high key canvases represent the natural and industrial environment, at this moment. These canvases are also the grounds for Alexander Boynes’ digital video projection which transports us out of the ash forest and into the Latrobe Valley, thrusting us into the future of the Anthropocene.
Tristen Parr’s sound work literally ‘rewrites the score’, the Elysium forest in Eugene von Guerard’s ‘Fern Tree Gully’ still rings to the sound of tree clearing but also carries the rumble of a new threat, Climate Change. His powerful cello composition melding with melancholic natural sounds remind us that the real world waits just beyond.
is a socially-engaged festival of climate change related arts and ideas featuring curated exhibitions and theatre works alongside a series of keynote lectures, events and public forums featuring local and international guests.
Presenting over thirty curated exhibitions at leading museums and galleries in Melbourne and regional Victoria, the 2019 festival will consider ideas and concepts around art and activism, community engagement, transition and accelerated action on climate change.
Alongside festival exhibitions, commissions, artist talks and keynote lectures our public programs will bring together experts in art practice and curatorship, with some of the foremost researchers in climate and environmental science, alongside prominent thinkers on cultural, philosophical and psychological consequences of climate change.
