RETUNING

September 11

@ Sydney Opera House for ANTIDOTE Festival

a RE:SOUNDING project - James Nguyen and Victoria Pham

"You're invited to a series of workshops and performances to re-tune the way we listen. Building on their practice exploring the Vietnamese Đông Sơn drum, artists James Nguyen and Victoria Pham have gathered an interactive assembly of master performers of the Dizi flute, the erhu, the didgeridoo, classic Indian movement, and Mongolian throat singing. Teaching us all to connect with sound systems that might be unfamiliar, RE:TUNING is a generous, experimental invitation to listen beyond the Western scale and dissolve auditory biases. Featuring musicians Chloe Chung, Bukhchuluun Ganburged, Nicholas Ng, Priya Srinivasan and Norm Jurrawaa Stanley, we encourage you to bring along your instruments, voices, ears and hearts, to the songs of our ancestors.

RE:TUNING forms part of the larger RE:SOUNDING research project by James Nguyen and Victoria Pham, which works to reframe our relationship to objects and artefacts in order to produce and offer new, collective experiences and sound traditions."

Commissioned by the Sydney Opera House and Arrow Collective

Produced by Michael Do and Chip Rolley

TERRA: MEMORY AND SOIL

September 3 - October 16

2022

TERRA: Memory & Soil
Victoria Pham & Joel Spring

Co-commissioned with Centre for Projection Art and Liquid Architecture

TERRA: Memory & Soil, is an immersive installation project combining sound, biological-sculpture, architecture and projection. A collaboration between artists Victoria Pham and Joel Spring bring critical interdisciplinary positions within their respective disciplines of evolutionary biology and architecture, bringing vastly different insights into notions of the built environment, history and legacies of colonialism. The artists' seek to interrogate how we remember our past landscapes by transforming gallery spaces into immersive gardens. Their mission is to place indigenous knowledge and diasporic narratives in a central position for knowledge production, cultural exchange and story-telling.

This project is supported by Arts Council England through their Developing Your Creative Practice fund.

DOMESTICUS VENUS

11th August - 3rd September

2022

@ KINGS Artist Run

"Domesticus Venus seeks to interrogate these reductive modes of research. By playfully tracking the creation of similar statues from this period into their discovery in the late 1890s and thus proclamation of an object that was intended as a mere toy into the religious symbol of a society labelled as ancient and primitive, this video work challenges modes of academic knowledge-making. This project asks us to consider the question; despite “objectivity” of scientific methods, do we ultimately superimpose our subjective perception of past behaviours and past cultures?"
