My Jindabyne II by Steaphan Paton was exhibited in Peel Street Park between September 2021 to December 2021.
In My Jindabyne, I am concerned with the audience viewing and experiencing what I see and feel on country. It is a combination vision, like a 4D or 5D visioning. It is about horizons, visioning, seeing, feeling and knowing.
This work was sparked by something I believe I heard in a folk song about the Snowy Mountains, created by workers of the Snowy Hydro Scheme. They were singing about my Nan’s Monero Country. The work is a statement and an exploration. In this work the audience is shown a way of seeing the landscape, in a way that I see it.
