CONFLUENCE brings together three artists exploring human relationships with water.
CONFLUENCE brings together three artists exploring human relationships with water; from the devastating, unbalanced and in-crisis, to the flowing and harmonious. Their work responds to water’s fluid, archetypal, natural and ritual qualities: from the mythic, photographic and sculptural works of Jeremy Blincoe that evidence the dying rivers, lakes and landscape of the Murray-Darling, to the fluidity and movement of Emmy Mavroidis’ bronze sculptures embodying the shared watery nature of all living beings.
Adding another stream, Claire Bridge explores concepts of inter-being and confluences of humanity, technology and ecology through her video work, ritual vocal performance, and sculptural installation teeming with life on the edge of an era of climate change and the 6th Mass Extinction. CONFLUENCE streams future possibilities for ongoing-ness, weaving together rivulets of opportunities to converse, transform and harmonise our relationships with water and each other.
CONFLUENCE can be viewed in person until December 12 or online in the Counihan Virtual Gallery until December 27, 2020.
