Floating Land SYMPOSIUM - Art's Mark on the Environment; the Environment's Mark on Art

Masao Okabe cercatori_14_4x6.jpg

Floating Land: point to point is the 2019 iteration of Noosa’s iconic biennial art even, featuring sculptural and performative installations in nature across two definitive and breathtaking sites – Boreen Point and Noosa National Park - and several spaces in between.

Extending on the pressing, poetic and ambitious works that are encountered in the natural environment during the Floating Land Biennale, the Floating Land Symposium provides a platform for in-depth discussion and a sharing of ideas around art’s ability to engage with the environment during a period of unprecedented urgency for action and change.

Across a series of compelling presentations, a gathering of notable artists and cultural leaders will reflect on the dynamic between art and environment; consider what’s at stake both materially and culturally; and investigate the creative interdependency of

Art’s Mark on the Environment

The Environment’s Mark on Art

This symposium is an opportunity to meet and hear from international, national and local artists on how art and the environment can create change.

SPEAKER LINE-UP:

Lyndon Davis and Brent Miller – Gubbi Gubbi (Kabi Kabi)

Deborah Hart – CLIMARTE – arts for a safe climate

Masao Okabe and Chihiro Minato – Trees to Trees – Okabe revisits Noosa after 31 years (pictured)

Blaklash – First Nations involvement in Brook Andrew’s Travelling Colony

Bianca Beetson – Indelible Stain – responding to the history of Murdering Creek

Leah Barclay – River Listening from Source to Sea

Kristian Haggblom – The Blue Sea of Foliage

Domenico de Clario – Floating Land, Floating Moon

Is art leaving its mark on the environment or is the environment leaving its mark on art?

Attendees are invited to mingle with the artists and presenters at The J Bar following the Floating Land Symposium.

The Floating Land Symposium has been generously supported by Friends Noosa Regional Gallery.

Floating Land: point to point marks the 10th iteration of Floating Land, one of Noosa’s most significant and iconic cultural events. From the serene shores of Lake Cootharaba at Boreen Point to the rocky outcrops of Noosa National Park – and several places in between – you are invited to experience thoughtful, challenging and environmentally aware works that engage sensitively with these special and spectacular spaces.

Please join us along with the Gubbi Gubbi Dance Troupe and Floating Land artists for the unveiling of Brook Andrew’s Travelling Colony and an afternoon of storytelling and workshops.

Immerse yourself in free workshops and events, including River Listening from Source to the Sea with artist Leah Barclay, and experience a collection of sculptures that emerge from the water itself. Take your time to walk the Ephemeral Art Trail or search for the Poly Pods scattered along the foreshore. Enjoy the Gubbi Gubbi Dance Troupe performance and Welcome to Country taking place on the corner of the Esplanade and Boreen Point Road.

PLEASE NOTE: If the weather is unsuitable for tomorrow’s official opening at 3pm (ie. rain or storm), please meet the Floating Land team at the Apollonian Hotel, Boreen Point. The official opening will still go ahead. www.apollonianhotel.com.au

Hear from Samantha Taylor and Miles Allen about their collaborative project, Equidistant, where two identical spheres are placed in differing circumstance: one on land, one at 'sea' above the lake waters, yet due to their distance apart, they are never seen exactly as the same.

ASH KEATING: Palm Grove Circuit Response - Painting Performance

8. Ash Keating (Hume Response) photo by Dan Preston_4x6.jpg

As Noosa starts its mid-week workday, Ash Keating will also start work on his three large-scale canvases for Floating Land: point to point, destined for display along the Palm Grove Circuit in the Noosa National Park.

In a rare opportunity to witness his creative process unfold, Keating gives us painting as performance, making his work with an audience looking on, adjacent to the entry to Noosa Regional Gallery.

Keating’s atmospheric abstract works see him shoot pigment onto prepared surfaces with a spray gun or fire extinguisher filled with paint. The resulting fields of tone and colour echo the nuanced shifts and organic forms that can be observed throughout the natural environment.

Free event
All welcome

*Please note, while it has been estimated that this painting performance will take place over the course of a couple of hours, this length of time may vary depending on how the paintings evolve and what the artist decides is required for their completion.

SEA FM’s Breakfast Show will broadcast from out the front of Noosa Regional Gallery on the morning of Keating’s painting performance. Audiences will also get their first glimpse of one of the caravans from Brook Andrew’s Travelling Colony project which will be revealed during the outside broadcast.
