Field Trip to Bilpin, Blue Mountains

BY SABRINA ROESNER
@ VOL 20 ON MAY 20, 2017

Field Trip brought together contemporary Blue Mountains artists Sarah Breen Lovett,
Ona Janzen, Linda Seiffert and Jacqueline Spedding, in an exhibition of site-specific works that explore the physical, cultural and historical landscapes of BigCi.

BigCi (Bilpin international ground for Creative initiatives) is an artist run residency, located on eight acres of bushland, bordering the Wollemi National Park in the World Heritage listed Blue Mountains. The property and its artist residency program provide a unique platform for creative development, linking community, artists and scientists.

Curator Sabrina Roesner invited the artists on several‭ field trips to BigCi‭ over a twelve-month period, ‬where each artist directly responded to the environment and unearthed a myriad of narratives connected to the property‭. ‬Their diverse enquiries including video and multi‭-media installation‭, ‬photography‭, ‬ceramics and sculpture resulted in four site-specific installations displayed across the BigCi property.
