In the his­toric set­ting of the Spring Hill Reser­voirs, an exper­i­men­tal lis­ten­ing ses­sion trac­ing root sys­tems of botany, psy­chol­ogy, lan­guage and coloni­sa­tion. Artists use voice to unearth sub­ter­ranean threads, tap­ping cham­bered mem­o­ries and gen­er­at­ing new echoes within this former arti­fi­cial body of water.

Jaye Carcary’s spoken word med­i­ta­tion will open a ground for indi­vid­ual and col­lec­tive lis­ten­ing that can expand, con­tract and reset by recon­nect­ing atten­tion to our bodies, and those of others with whom we share water, air and time.

Ances­tress, from Bim­bilove, who is a Birri Gubba and Kun­galu woman, will present an abstract aural explo­ration of plant sto­ries and voice.

Libby Har­ward is a Ngugi woman from the Quan­damooka. Her work MINYANGNYINDA YARINYAMINYANG NYINDA YAGAY BA? (WHAT ARE YOU SAYINGWHAT ARE YOU DOING?) layers the sounds the plants hear, in the com­po­si­tion of a new noise rite.

Nature’s Right is by curated by Liquid Architecture co-Artistic Director Danni Zuvela, and is a collaboration between the Australian Earth Laws Alliance (AELA), Liquid Architecture and people + artist + place (Jenna Green and Marisa Georgiou), and forms part of Liquid Architecture’s investigation, Why Listen to Plants.
