Brisbane-based artist Caitlin Franzmann’s ‘Tree-telling’ returns to MPavilion in 2018.

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 seven cards are 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 embark on a journey that proceeds from Tarot reading, to a shared walk from MPavilion to their chosen tree and back, to experimental listening session.

schedule

Caitlin and her assistant Nancy Lin will be at MPavilion awaiting visitors at the following times:

11AM – 2PM Mon 22, Tue 23, Wed 24 & Fri 26 January

11AM – 4PM Sat 27 January & Sun 28 January.

Music for the original Tree-telling sonic works is composed by David M. Thomas.

‘Tree-telling’ is a Liquid Architecture project developed for MPavilion.
