Tarkine in Motion

  • Jugglers Art Space 103 Brunswick Street Fortitude Valley, QLD, 4006 Australia (map)

Tarkine in Motion brings together artists who were involved in a collaborative project designed to capture the wild and scenic landscapes of the threatened and remote region of the takayna/Tarkine in North West Tasmania, Australia.

From the Bob Brown Foundation comes an innovative and major contribution to environmental art.

Over Easter for the last two years 150 artists spent three days in the wild with one goal: capture the takayna/Tarkine and spread a message to the world to protect the threatened wilderness. Participants included videographers, writers, musicians, painters, print-makers, dancers and photographers. This is Tarkine in Motion. 

“This exhibition is about the impact of the takayna/Tarkine on those artists and which awaits use all in its rainforests, wide button grass plains, mountain ranges and boisterous seashores.” – BOB BROWN

Bob Brown Foundation is campaigning to have 450,000 hectares of the takayna/Tarkine declared a national park and World Heritage Area.
