Anna Kristensen at Gertrude Contemporary, Melbourne

13th Apr 2012

Anna Kristensen is included in the group exhibition The Bellowing Echoes, at Gertrude Contemporary, Melbourne. This show features work by Jess Johnson, Anna Kristensen, Tessa Zettel and Karl Khoe, The Slow Art Collective and Marcin Wojcik.

Curated by Marcel Cooper and Bronwyn Bailey-Charteris, The Bellowing Echoes takes the essence of a Melbourne story and uses it as a provocation and as a point of exchange with artists who value the personal, the political and the relational.

 As impetus for the exhibition is the story of George Arden, who in 1838 longs for community. As the colony of Port Phillip emerges, Arden rises and falls in his quest to politicise and reflect upon his new environment. Cooper and Bailey-Charteris employ this avatar of the 1800s as a guide through a temporal wanderlust of immersive installation and process orientated works.

This project forms part of the 2012 Next Wave Festival and Gertrude Contemporary’s Emerging Curators Program.
