Cracks in the Seams is a performance installation that will be performed for a video and photo shoot on the diving platforms at the edges of Lake Wendouree, where the historic overlay of original 1920s bathing meets 21st century performance. Trust and tension, control and release and interdependence all meet in this project, with Arts Academy dance students performing the work under the tutelage and direction of performance artist and director Jill Orr. The production will then be shown as a video installation throughout the 2017 Ballarat International Foto Biennale.
Exhibited both nationally and internationally, Jill Orr’s performance work centres on issues of the psychosocial and environmental where she draws on land and identities as they are shaped in, on and with the environment, be it country or urban locales. Orr grapples with the balance and discord that exists at the heart of relations between the human spirit, art and nature.
