Visionary: Lynette Wallworth

Rosny Farm Arts Centre

11 - 5pm Wednesday - Sunday, 04 - 21 Mar 2021

Lynette Wallworth, Awavena, 2019

Expand your understanding of the world and humanity itself with mesmerising installations by Lynette Wallworth for Ten Days on the Island 2021. Through her virtual and mixed reality experiences and extraordinary command of complex technologies Wallworth evokes that most fundamental of human emotions: empathy. This three-part Festival centerpiece celebrates a visionary Australian artist and filmmaker whose multi-faceted practice explores the creative and human possibilities of screen media.


Three part exhibitions includes:

  • For Awavena, you will don a headset and explore a vivid forest, learning about an Amazonian community that has emerged from the clutches of slavery and now raises its women into village chiefs and spiritual leaders.

Bookings are required for Awavena.  The experience is in two parts:
– Part 1 runs for 17 minutes and is a seated experience.
– Part 2 runs for 6 minutes and is an active experience.

In total, allow 45 minutes for the experience.
