For this exhibition, new work from James Hullick’s machine installation practice will accompany TarraWarra Museum of Art’s major survey of the work of Edwin Tanner. The exhibition will feature two new installations by Hullick that are in dialogue with the works of Tanner: THE ARBOUR OF DOORS, a speaker cave made of recycled audiovisual materials that visitors can enter, and THE ORRERY OF HUMAN DESIRES, a mechanical model of rotating speakers and analogue synthesisers which will articulate orbits of human desire. The two works have been conceived of as ‘instruments’ for expanding audiovisual practice.

THE FISSION-FUSION WHALE
Part concert, part music theatre, part song cycle.
The Fission-Fusion Whale maps out a 21st-century fairy tale: three face-painted god-like interstellar explorers find one of their number swallowed within a galactic whale.
The work pivots on the vocal performances of Justine Anderson and Strange James, supported by the supernova-sonic terrains of renowned percussionist Peter Neville. An added audio-visual dimension informs the project through the Duckworth Hullick Duo’s implementation of Jonathan Duckworth’s Resonance Table — a touchscreen audiovisual instrument.
