    Event description

    On Saturday 18th May DADAA Gallery Fremantle will open early for a morning listening session with Kristen Brownfield as part of the exhibition, remember the blue sky.

    Kristen invites you to join her in the gallery for tea or coffee while she shares a sound recording of the trees in her yard. While you are listening, you might like to draw, read, journal, or just tune into the sound.

    Kristen Brownfield, psithurism (sunrise), 2024, 56 minutes.

    ‘Psithurism’ is the word for the sound of leaves rustling in the wind. It derives from the Greek word ‘psythuros’, which means ‘whispering’. I enjoy this sound a lot, and it has consumed me as I’ve made the work for this show and contemplated my relationship with the trees in our yard.

    The sound brings me calm and a sense of wonder, telling me the trees are there. It fills our house, my ears, and my entire body. It is hard to imagine life without the sound, without the trees.

    I began recording the sound as I read in the hammock or went about other activities at home. The audio became something I’d listen back to in the studio, a small sample of the environment and a feeling that I could revisit anywhere.
