2017 Floating Land installation 'seamline'




Our work ‘ SeamLine’ offers us the opportunity to engage with the complexities and legacies  of past interruptions to the Noosa River environs. How do we speak of the forces of humans and nature, of indiscriminate growth and indiscriminate decay and loss? Can we still find the lost fragments of the primitive and wild and make them visible? Can we be satisfied with contemporary composites in the natural environment? In time, will they take on a beauty and force of their own?

truth in arts award - WANDERING THIRST WON!

PARKS VICTORIA ANNOUNCED WINNERS FOR PEOPLE AND NATURE ART AWARD –and their local Queensland Artists
Artists Tamara Kirby (Cooran) and Corrie Wright (Maleny) have won the inaugural ‘Truth in Art Award’ for their work, Wandering Thirst.
Receiving over 100 submissions, the awards challenged artists to interpret the relationship between people, parks and the “inconvenient truth” of climate change, which is affecting the environment and the health and wellbeing of society.

““We are excited about receiving the award. This award allows for the acknowledgment of 'art in the environment' and its importance. For us, the Award reinforces our belief in the capacity of contemporary art to connect with others in different ways. Many thanks to Parks Victoria and everyone involved in the Truth in Art Award, we commend the visionaries in the organisation who understand the impact of art. We are both passionate artists and passionate environmentalists working collaboratively in our own art practices and in the community sector.”

The work 'Wandering Thirst' was supported by The Sunshine Coast Regional Council and Urban Arts Projects.
