Minefields and Fossil Fables
Minefields — A lecture-performance
Thursday 6 — 8 pm, June 22, 2023 @ Tin Sheds Gallery
The Global Extraction Observatory presents the lecture-performance Minefields, focused on the effects of energy production and resource extraction in Australia and beyond.
This lecture-performance draws on sounds, texts, voice and images to unpick the historic, mythic, political, economic and material entanglement that defines Australia's mining identity.
Fossil Fables — Book launch
This evening will also launch the book Fossil Fables, designed and conceptualised in collaboration with Therese Keogh, incorporating images and texts developed specifically for this exhibition.
