HOBIENNALE 2019: 415 Parts Per Million
Cool Change Contemporary (WA) presents
415 Parts Per Million ~ Rachel Salmon-Lomas, Sophie G Nixon, Esther McDowell/ Yabini Kickett & Dexter Rosengrave
As the effects of climate change cut through stratifications of culture, 415 Parts Per Million brings together individual voices of protesters and artists.
Objects of dissent designed to last and speak their power for a few brief hours are given a secondary agency. Placards and signs – physical symbols of individual outcry – collected from the recent Global Climate Strike on Whadjuk Noongar boodja (Perth, WA) are brought to the country of the Mumirimina people (Clarence, TAS). Echoes from this global action are exhibited alongside works by artists whose practices focus on individual efforts to acknowledge their relationship to, and capacity for action, in response to this existential crisis.
This exhibition is presented by Cool Change Contemporary (Perth) as part of HOBIENNALE 2019. In its second year, this biannual arts festival brings together artist-run initiatives (ARIs) and emerging artists for ten days of some of the most interesting, critical and diverse exhibitions, music, performances and talks from across Australia and New Zealand.
Please join us for the opening event on Sunday 17th of November from 4pm at the Rosny Farm.
