The second of CAM’s Terrace Projections – a new commission by Castlemaine-based artist Zoe Scoglio, Agri-Cultures
During the cold dark nights of winter, the Castlemaine Art Museum façade will be illuminated with video from the summer and autumnal days at Gung Hoe Growers and the Harcourt Organic Farming Co-op, from 6pm every night.
Agri-Cultures is a commissioned video work by local artist Zoe Scoglio in dialogue with local small-scale farmers Gung Hoe growers in response to the theme ‘Industry’.
This work attends to the metabolic flows of energy between stomach and soil, that nourish life in both a material and immaterial way. It also considers the workers and the community who produce the food to include the sun, rain and micro-biomes.
Zoe Scoglio is an artist of European descent engaging diverse mediums in collaborative, conversational and ecological ways. For more information about Zoe Scoglio’s work you can visit her website here.
Castlemaine Art Museum aims to be Australia’s leading regional art museum in the sphere of bold curation that brings art and objects from the past and present into multi-layered conversations; creating a dynamic platform for new voices, community connections, reflections and ideas.
