Currently happening at RMIT Design Hub,Super Fieldpresents the work of 19 artists responding to the unique and particular conditions surrounding certain remote and isolated locations. The works on show – divided into sound and vision – are a response by each artist to the environments researched and experienced during a prolonged period of immersion within the selected locality. The exhibition comprises four programs – corresponding to four specific geographic regions – changing over the course of the three-month exhibition span. High Country: The Australian Alps, A Surrender to Nature: The Kimberley, and Glacial Erratic: Antarctica and the Arctic were featured from December to late January, with the final program, Unheard Spaces: International wilderness area, currently on show. The exhibition was curated by the Bogong Centre for Sound Culture whose mission is to explore the history, ecology and communities of the Australian Alps through the provision of support and residencies for artists.
