Rewriting The Score
Latrobe Regional Gallery
Commissioned as part of ART+CLIMATE=CHANGE 2019 festival

Artists: Mandy Martin, Alexander Boynes, Tristen Parr
Curators: Shelley Ditterich, Jessica Row

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 12 x 3 metre canvases represents the Valley’s natural and industrial environs 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.
