Suspended breath: a Hartz journey

Exhibition and Shows

20 Jan 2022 to 9 Feb 2022 Once Only Event

A collaborative exhibition of painting, music and words dedicated to the Huon Valley’s Hartz Mountains and is curated by Huon Valley artists Kat Scarlet, Gareth Dawson and Jane Rawson.
What brought us here? What keeps us tied to this place? How does it change us and how do we change it? Our understanding of this place is deeply embedded in its nature and the Hartz Mountains are emblematic of that natural world.
The national park is a landscape so dramatically different to the valley floor – its strange and ancient plants, its rock screes, its vast vistas or rapidly smothering clouds – but so near that we can visit it on a whim. What does it mean to have such majesty, to have a place so wildly inhuman, so close to home?
The fires of the past decade and the island’s drying, warming climate have rewritten – subtly or permanently – the ecosystems of Tasmania’s alpine areas. In future decades they will change even more. What does a change in the landscape and the living creatures of the Hartz Mountains mean for our understanding of and relationship with this place?
This project aims to grapple with these questions but, more than that, it is a love letter to a landscape found nowhere else on earth.
