Curated by Gretel Taylor
Yarra Ranges Council
Sept-Oct, 2018

Seeking radical ways of engaging with nature through art, curator Gretel Taylor invited leading Australian performance and visual artists to respond to the theme ‘force of nature’, with an emphasis on participation and performance. Artists’ works related to the potency or influence of local environments on our lives and arts practices, referred to global environmental forces or climates, and responded to a situation of ‘post-nature’.

Force of Nature comprised an exhibition at Yarra Ranges Regional Museum with satellite events at local sites, September- October 2018.

EPA artists contributed:

  • Installations, dance video and soundscapes at Yarra Ranges Regional Museum
  • A one day ‘Nature Dancing’ workshop in a forest at Eagle Nest Picnic Ground, Olinda
  • A lakeside performance for a forum at Lilydale Lake
