Janet Laurence in ‘Troubled Waters’ and at the HWK


Troubled Waters at the Anne & Gordon Samstag Museum of Art

Janet Laurence is exhibiting as part of Troubled Waters at the Anne & Gordon Samstag Museum of Art. Originally exhibited at the University of New South Wales, the exhibition will travel to Adelaide in late April.

A major collaborative project between UNSW Science and UNSW Art & Design, Troubled Waters illustrates the complex ecosystem of rivers and oceans by tracing the Murray from its source at Corryong in Victoria to its mouth in South Australia’s Coorong region. Works by multimedia artists, in close collaboration with leading environmental scientist Richard Kingsford, bring environmental research into the gallery to poetically interpret information not easily accessed by non-scientific audiences. Featuring work by: Nici Cumpston; Tamara Dean; Bonita Ely; Georgia Wallace-Crabbe; and Richard Kingsford with Andrew Belletty & Janet Laurence.

Troubled Waters is a UNSW Art & Design exhibition curated by Dr Felicity Fenner, Director, UNSW Galleries.

Exhibition runs from April 28 to June 9.

Hanse-Wissenschaftskolleg (HWK)

Laurence will also undertake a six-week residency at the Hanse-Wissenschaftskolleg (HWK) in Delmenhorst, Germany. As an international Fellow, Laurence will continue work on her research project Blood and Chlorophyll. My Heart Wears Flowers and Fruits in the Night, commenced late last year.

The HWK promotes the disciplinary and interdisciplinary collaboration of internationally-renowned scientists and young investigators by offering guest scholars (Fellows) the opportunity to concentrate on research projects for a certain space of time without the distractions of their regular academic responsibilities.

Laurence will undertake the residency from April to June 2017.
