EYE OF THE CORVUS:

MESSENGER OF TRUTH

Official Opening

14 December | 2.00pm

From the ancient stories of indigenous cultures of the world to the more contemporary sagas and fables of western civilisations, birds of the Corvidae family (ravens and crows) are highly symbolic - representing the presence of death, all-seeing knowledge, evil, good luck and protection.Using multi-channel video projection with layers of ambient and constructed, amplified sounds, triggered by motion sensors, and recorded on location in Australia and Iceland, Eye of the Corvus, explores the range of these birds in two of their native lands – drawing the participant into a new narrative through the avian eye. It will be an immersive experience, throwing the viewer into the expansive field of view of the raven, reimagining landscapes familiar in one aspect, made unfamiliar through additional layers of information. Adaptation, narrative, myth-making and interdependence collide in the raven. It is a marker not just for our time and culture but for many times and many cultures. This is a WPCC exhibition.
