Thunderhead was created through the artist’s chance encounter with an enormous storm system while driving through South-West Texas. This imposing and hypnotic video installation creates an extended moment, inviting us to reflect on the power and precarity of nature. As the installation loops and whirls, it takes us on on a transcendent journey propelled by its oscillating and pounding soundtrack.

Thunderhead will be brought to life each night by a haunting improvised sound performance by Tina Havelock Stevens (drums) and collaborating musician Liberty Kerr (guitar). These performances create an ever-evolving soundscape that accompanies and amplifies Havelock Stevens’ epic video installation. We invite you to settle in and reflect on decay, survival and fragility within urban, environmental and emotional spaces at the end of the Anthropocene.

 

Supported by Museum of Old and New Art (MONA), this project was first presented at Dark Mofo 2016
The Australian Artists’ Grant is a NAVA initiative, made possible through the generous sponsorship of Mrs Janet Holmes à Court and the support of the Visual Arts Board, Australia Council for the Arts.
