Roots in a Miracle
2022 - 2023
Performance/ Video Installation
Dear Agnes Exhibition
The area I grew up in and site of the Agnes Dene project ‘A forest for Australia’ is used as a base to delve into personal narratives of place and memory, blending human experience with nature.
A poetical look at the connection of a personal journey and the Ficus Carica (fig tree) that has spanned a lifetime. Subtle movements in nature evoke memories revolving around growth, death, birth and tragedy that ebb and flow as I move through different life stages.
The installation invites you to experience various layers of a fleeting but complex relationship with one species of the natural world and its effects that are deeply ingrained in my story.
