Victoria Hunt

October 2011

During her residency Victoria Hunt created two site-specific performances, in collaboration with Vic McEwan.

Roadside Frequencies

Devised by Vic McEwan, this was a performance for un-expecting passing traffic. Victoria Hunt, Vic McEwan, an upright piano and an illuminated plastic gown embedded on top of two dam walls. An installation on the horizon with audio being broadcast to passing cars through radio frequencies. An unexpected snippet of performative installation on a long journey.

River Inside the Skin

A performance commemorating the native fish that once thrived in waterholes before the carp. Poison Waterhole Creek, chosen for its beauty and for its many truths buried in the mud and collective memory of local people. European carp act out historical violences that continue to threaten and defeat us all.
