‘Ngurini’ immersive installation, Jessie Boylan, Linda Dement and Nucelar Futures, 2015.
Linda Dement is a Sydney based artist who has worked in arts computing since the late 1980s. Originally a photographer, her digital practice spans the programmed, performative, textual and virtual. Her work deals with issues of disturbance, commingling psycho-sexual corporeality and the digital and electronic, giving form to the difficult territory of the unbearable and conflicted with precision and control. Her work is held in collections such as the Bibliotèque Nationale de France, Australian Video Art Archive, New York Filmmakers Co-op and the Daniel Langlois Foundation.
Jessie Boylan is a photomedia artist based in Castlemaine, Victoria. She explores issues relating to human impacts on the land and communities in relation to environmental and social devastation- like nuclear testing, mining and war. She is a member of the Atomic Photographers Guild, an international group who aim to render visible all aspects of the nuclear age and is a key artist in Nuclear Futures, an Australia Council-funded community arts project, which is exploring the legacy of the nuclear age through creative arts. Boylan teaches Photography at La Trobe University in Bendigo, Australia.
Linda and Jessie will develop collaborative work giving form to the immanent threat of nuclear weaponry.
During 2013, Linda Dement was in residence at Bundanon, where she continued to develop her work titled POISON.
