Will to Form: Activated
The sixth TarraWarra Biennial exhibition explores how human will is expressed in physical form. From throwing liquid bronze to whistling for three days straight, these works harness our wilful energies in curious and surprising ways.
Experience a day of transformative performances, artist talks, exhibition activations and a workshop at this special TarraWarra Biennial 2018: From Will to Form event set in the spectacular surrounds of TarraWarra Museum of Art in the Yarra Valley.
Artist Kusum Normoyle will use the Museum’s extraordinary natural amphitheatre to premiere her new solo work Solid (Loud) Matter 2018. Through her amplified voice, Normoyle will channel the power and energy of the land in an awe inspiring live performance set outside and overlooking the Yarra Valley terrain.
Other live performances include Belle Bassin, who will present the final culmination of her experimental body of work In Your Place, An Empty Space 2017-18, based on her exploration of invisible forms and forces; and Bridie Lunney’s All for Nothing 2018, with five vocalists who will sing into the artist’s brass and gold sculptural forms, waking up the gallery space with their sonic vibrations.
Artists Ellarose Savage and Racy Oui-Pitt from Erub Arts in the Torres Strait will present a Drop-By Workshop for visitors to stitch and weave with ghost net (abandoned fishing net).
Will to Form: Activated will also feature floor talks by TarraWarra Biennial artists in conversation with curator Emily Cormack, giving insight into artworks that consider the wild, intangible forces that animate human behaviour.
Coffee, pastries, wine, cheese platters and light lunch options will be available for purchase throughout the day from The Deck at TarraWarra Estate.
