Rewriting the Score, Latrobe Regional Gallery
Alexander Boynes, Mandy Martin, Tristen Parr, curated by Shelley Ditterich, Jessica Row
13th April - 14th July 2019
Artists Alexander Boynes, Mandy Martin and Tristen Parr have collaborated on a new twelve metre installation for ART+CLIMATE=CHANGE 2019 at Latrobe Regional Gallery. Rewriting the Score was commissioned by Latrobe Regional Gallery in collaboration with CLIMARTE and incorporates painting, video and sound to address the energy transitions that are occurring in the Latrobe Valley.
Mandy Martin’s high key canvases represent the Valley’s 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.
