Stray (Collaborative partnership of Natasha Anderson and Sarah Pirrie)
Hidden/Pulse disturbance takes the mangrove boardwalk at Fannie Bay and mines the site for environmental, sociological and material information. Starting with the somewhat vertiginous architecture of the boardwalk, this work plays with the ways in which 'Nature' is variously framed and disturbed by both human desire and activity – and in turn how nature itself assimilates and acculturates the effects of this human activity. Stray, the collaborative team of Natasha Anderson and Sarah Pirrie, seek to create strange parallel environments – third ecologies – somewhere between the framed cultural site of the gallery and the demarcated 'natural' environment. These third spaces mirror our contingent framing of the 'natural'.
