Art Gallery of Western Australia, Spaced, Rural Utopias

Biosphere 2023
single channel video, 19.00 minutes. 

Biosphere collages text, video and sound collected during conversations with local residents. It presents a humorous and self-reflexive counter narrative to a utopian dream, told through a outsider’s portrait of a town attempting to renew itself (once again), supported by the ebb and flow of mining and farming in relation to the regions, history with First Nations peoples and climate change.

Concept, text, performance: Sarah Rodigari
Editing: Garden Reflexxx
Video: Jarvis Smallman, Dave Riggs, Sarah Rodigari
Sound Composition: Evelyn Ida Morris
