TREE-TELLING (ARTIST CAITLIN FRANZMANN)

TREE-TELLING (ARTIST CAITLIN FRANZMANN)

Tree-telling, 2016-2017, one-on-one card readings, including a table, two stools, 7 hand-painted divination cards & 7 sonic works.

Presented with Liquid Architecture at MPavilion, Queen Victoria Gardens, Melbourne.

Tree-telling is a site-specific work that was commissioned by Liquid Architecture for MPavilion in Queen Victoria Gardens, Melbourne, in 2016 and 2017. In Tree-telling, Franzmann deploys hand-crafted divination cards as the trigger for experimental one-on-one encounters between the artist and individual participants. The work comprises seven divination cards, paired with seven sound compositions, each corresponding to a tree in the Queen Victoria Gardens surrounding the MPavilion: Canary Island Palm, River Red Gum, London Plane, Algerian Oak, Jacaranda, Atlas Cedar and Lilly Pilly. Selecting a card from the deck, visitors embarked on a journey that proceeded from divination reading, to a shared walk from MPavilion to their chosen tree and back, to experimental listening session.
