Museum of Contemporary Art

Take part in an intimate collective walk to different locations around Tallawoladah (The Rocks) with artist Bianca Hester as you reflect on the entanglement of social and environmental forces in each place – and the way colonial inheritance, environmental crisis, evolution and extinction bind them together.

Combining listening, walking and tactile engagement, this event also draws on Hester’s artistic process of making rubbings and castings of rock surfaces. New writing by the artist, along with extracts from her books Sandstone (2020) and Groundwork (2021), will be spoken in fragments by multiple voices as part of the journey.

The experience will culminate inside the MCA where Hester’s installation Constellating bodies in temporary correspondence is on display. Reading walking lithic bodies responds to the volcanic field of Tāmaki Makarau Auckland (where Constellating bodies in temporary correspondence was made) and the sandstone geology of the Sydney Basin (where the work now resides).

This performance will be followed by a free book launch for Hester’s new book Groundwork at the MCA at 11.30am.

Duration: 1 hour and 30 minutes
