Saturday 21st October // Boardwalk Gallery, Wrest Point
Tina Havelock Stevens is a multi-disciplinary artist whose work is defined by a meditation on the relationships we have with each other, the places we inhabit, and ourselves. Often working with landscapes, she dwells on sites that are abandoned, deserted and vacant, to speak of survival and fragility within urban, environmental and emotional spaces. One of her performance projects, White Drummer, sees her perform spontaneous compositions as durational-based percussive actions using full drum-kits. The performance is not framed by its location but inhabits it visually and sonically tuning into the frequencies of site and place, the inexplicable and the other. Recent exhibitions include Sounding Art, PSArtSpace, Fremantle, 2017; John Fries Award, UNSW, Sydney, 2017; Contagious Magic, Galerie Pom Pom, Sydney, 2017; Techstyle, MILL 6 Foundation, Hong Kong, 2016; and THUNDERHEAD, Performance Space, Carriageworks, Sydney, and DARK MOFO, Hobart, 2016.
