Fragmented Coalesce

Fragmented Coalesce

Fragmented Coalesce is a site specific, collaborative video performance with Rohan Morris created for the Mildura Palimpsest Biennale #10. We worked across two sites- Mildura and Hobart- exploring themes of identity and relationship to place, engaging in a ‘performative conversation’ in response to landscape, materials, space, and each other.

Thank you to all who donated to our Pozible campaign! Thanks to you and the Art Tasmania Crowbar program, Fragmented Coalesce was 111% funded!

In June 2015 the Hobart residency took place. Here we worked with local photographer/cameraman Matthew Newton to capture site specific performative responses to three sites chosen by Rachel- Mount Wellington, Cascade Female Factory and Seven Mile Beach.

We presented a night projection at Penny Contemporary Gallery, Hobart. This work was an experimentation of layering footage from chosen sights with some movement based responses. A rendition of Fragmented Coalesce will be shown at Penny Contemporary Gallery, Hobart, in March 2016.

Rachel visited Mildura in August to participate in the second cross residency. Here we worked with local photographer/cameraman Rob Klarich to capture site specific performative responses to three sites chosen by Rohan- Lamberts Swamp Salt Lake, Perry Sandhills in Wentworth, and the Psyche Pumps at Kings Billabong.

In February 2015 the artist participated in a 3 day intensive workshop An Ecology of Object and Actions with Alexs Danko and Jude Walton. This resulted in a durational performance piece Dissolving Lamberts Swamp Salt with Murray River Water.
