THE ISTHMUS

Cameron Robbins & Jon Tarry

16 June to 22 July

 

Exhibition Catalogue

‘The Isthmus’, responds to conditions of site, amplifying environmental forces to generate artfully informed responses to specific location and circumstance. The peninsula site of Heathcote is an elevated limestone promontory, part of the deep ecology of the Swan River. It catches the scent of Ocean merging with dynamic natural light, shifting by day as the celestial sky by night assures the vastness of time passing. The project will integrate a ‘test site’, sensing and recording the approach to the elemental drift. Wind powered drawing devices, solar inscribers, sonic sensors will fuse in a multidisciplinary exhibition by artists Cameron Robbins and Jon Tarry.

 

‘The Isthmus’ is a part of the ‘EarthCone’ project, which has taken the artists to diverse locations, from the Teufelsberg listening stations in Berlin to the dormant volcano Mt Noorat in Victoria. Heathcote will build on and reference aspects of these projects.
