Burrinja Climate Change Biennale

After a 5-year break the Burrinja Climate Change Biennale will be returning 3 December 2022 until 17 Feb 2023 with an Award Exhibition at the Burrinja Gallery.

I was a finalist in the last 2017 Burrinja Climate Change Biennale, and am very pleased to be able to exhibit there again.

From the scientific to the fantastic, the cultural to the creative, the Burrinja Climate Change Biennale brings together diverse voices, practices and perspectives to interrogate and speculate on the future we so desperately need.

I will be the only South Australian participating in the Award Exhibition with over 40 artists spanning a range of art forms.

Bigger than ever, the Biennale will feature a national cohort of 60+ artists. The project includes ‘Live Actions’ across the Yarra Ranges, A moving image program, and various exhibitions across multiple venues including Art Centre Warburton, Yarra Ranges Regional Museum and The Memo, Healesville.

Climate Report, 2021. First exhibited in a solo exhibition ‘Uprising‘ at Sauerbier House Culture Exchange, SA.

Artwork statement
The ocean is a recreational playground for many Australians. Gazing, paddling, splashing, fishing.

The pleasure is on course to subside as we experience coastal erosion through rising sea levels and the loss of marine ecosystems through increased water temperatures.

Temperature is core to impacts like rising sea levels and the destabilisation of our future weather patterns.

‘Climate Report’ upends a symbol of our relaxed relationship with the ocean to become a dramatic indicator of current environmental changes happening slowly around us.

This artwork is just one from the ‘Uprising’ series. You can see more of the works on the Uprising exhibition page.

The Burrinja Climate Change Biennale is delivered in partnership with Yarra Ranges Council, Yarra Ranges Regional Museum, and Your Library.
