In her latest solo exhibition Transmission, artist Kelly Leonard asks: How can we make sense of the volatile and uncertain times in which we live? The exhibition presents a series of recent woven and audio-visual works that allow the artist to process the world around her. During the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and lockdowns, Leonard began weaving with Broken Hill Bell Wire, a material used by the mining industry to activate explosives. The specificity of this material opened up questions around how we listen to and learn from the natural environment. Her exhibition ultimately presents a series of listening devices, presented in both original form and gestural videos in which Leonard installed the works amongst rivers, lakes and rocks to record what she could see, hear, smell and touch. In Transmission, Leonard entangles the wellbeing of humans and our planet to give voice to the landscape. 

Kelly acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands and waters where she walks and listens. She pays respect to the ancestors and Elders, past, present and emerging. 

Transmission has been made possible with funding support from Create NSW and Regional Arts NSW.
