Photo: Sonia Leber and David Chesworth, Where Lakes Once Had Water (video still), 2020, 2-channel 4K UHD video, stereo audio, 28:14 minutes. University of Wollongong Art Collection. CABAH Art Series Commission in partnership with Bundanon. Filmed on the lands of the Mudburra, Marlinja, Jingili, Elliot, Jawoyn and Larrakia communities in Northern Territory, Australia.

In 2018 and 2019 Sonia Leber and David Chesworth were invited to travel with a team of Earth scientists on a field trip to remote, expansive landscapes in Australia’s Northern Territory. This inter-disciplinary experience resulted in an immersive long-form video artwork Where Lakes Once Had Water, filmed on the lands of the Mudburra, Marlinja, Jingili, Elliot, Jawoyn and Larrakia communities.

Sonia Leber & David Chesworth: Where Lakes Once Had Water was commissioned by the Education and Engagement program of the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for Australian Biodiversity and Heritage (CABAH) in association with Bundanon. It is the first of four art commissions, in a series initiated in 2018 that aims to engage artists with aspects of CABAH’s research to make new work that responds to, questions, and interprets the research for broader audiences.

The artwork and the scientific research have been supported by the Australian Government through the Australian Research Council Centres of Excellence scheme (Project Number CE170100015).
