Dianne Fogwell’s multi-panelled installation, Prescience, presents a panoramic view of the Australian landscape, highlighting both its beauty and its precarity due to climate change.
Through fifty-six exquisitely detailed hand-printed panels, Fogwell creates an immersive experience of the bush, emphasising the interconnectedness of the natural world, humanity’s central role in its destruction, and the cycle of regeneration that follows natural disasters such as fire. The installation is accompanied by a musical composition by Reuben Lewis taking inspiration from the choreography and sounds of the natural world.
