Between Two Sites

Above the Snow Line, Triptych 1 image 1 is from a photographic black and white series by Sarah Lynch. The photo is an archival inkjet print, di-bond mounted, and 118cm wide by 66 cm high. Image 1 is a mid-shot, from about waist height at 5 metres away, of 10 or more leafless snow gum trees standing spread from left to right behind a foreground of low-lying bushes and shrubs weighted with snow. Heavy fog ladens the top half of the image, accentuating the crispness of the bare snow gum trunks.

The Between Two Sites exhibition and public programs respond to the impact of human activity on habitats in the Yarra Ranges and Alpine Shire. Curated by Madelynne Cornish and Sarah Lynch for the Bogong Centre for Sound Culture. It showcases the artwork of Victorian and international artists who participated in the centre’s residency program. These artists have undertaken extensive fieldwork within the Yarra Ranges, Alpine National Park and Kiewa Valley. They have produced a new range of site-specific artworks that comprise a rich and diverse set of environmental references to deepen our understanding of these places. Artists have used audio-visual installation, photography and sound composition to reflect the ecology of these regions.
