In March 2006, eight artists embarked on a three week journey through forest, river, estuary and bay along the Great South West Walk in Victoria. Walk invites us to discover this fragile environment through a diverse range of contemporary art, craft, sound and video art.
Walk was conceived to encourage artistic experimentation and collaboration. The artists - John Wolsley, Vicki Couzens, Peter Corbett, Brian Laurence, Iika White, Nicky Hepburn and Jan Learmouth - were invited as their practices reveal a passionate engagement with environment and curiosity about its relation to the self. Learning from the land, the artists documented their journeys and recorded their observations in drawings and journals, collections, sound and image recordings. The exhibition of resultant art works will be an archive of experience and encounter that recreates the feeling of immersion in a myriad of ways.
Curated by Martina Copley, Walk is a NETS Victoria touring exhibition that features around 40 works of art.
