3 February 2024 – 5 May 2024

Animal Studies member and artist Jen Valender’s exhibition Field presents a new body of work developed during Valender’s creative residency at the University of Melbourne’s Agricultural Campus in Dookie for the Centre of Visual Arts’ Art + Ecology program.

Inspired by sights, sounds, stories, and serendipitous encounters with residents of all species during Valender’s time in Dookie, Field features a multi-channel video installation of four moving image works (Re-search, Bovine Harp, Artist as Animal and Sediment) that combine sculpture, performance and video to explore aspects of agricultural life, and the relationship between art and the natural world.

Congratulations Jen – please do get involved and support her!
