Spawn

Rebecca Jensen

28 Apr–15 May 2021

Spawn forms part of Rebecca's ongoing research into dance as an equally practical and speculative force. Working with fiction to move beyond the stalemates of the present - creating small openings to the new, unnamable and undefinable.

What if the body is actually getting bio-hacked when it's in movement? Through enacting gestures from different sense realms could we unlock portals to time travel? Could dance be the conduit in the search of a materiality for feeling and thinking the non-human and other forms unknowable to human sensing?

This video work will be accompanied by live performance at times throughout the exhibition period.

This program takes place on the land of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation. We recognise that sovereignty was never ceded - this land is stolen land. We pay respects to Wurundjeri Elders, past, present and emerging, to the Elders from other communities and to any other Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islanders who might encounter or participate in the program.
