JANET LAURENCE’s creation ‘TREELINE TRACKS’, part of Siteworks, an annual event that brings together scientists, artists and community leaders opens this weekend.
Bundanon stretches across 1100 hectares of the distinctive Shoalhaven landscape, its rocky escarpments, pristine bush and 12 kilometres of the river. More than 90 per cent of the property is bushland and a Wildlife Sanctuary protecting threatened species.
The chief executive of Bundanon Trust, Deborah Ely, says the artwork brings together ideas explored by Laurence in her practice such as the notion of restoration and repair, history and memory, plants and biodiversity. “Treelines Tracks tells stories and celebrates trees,” Ely says. “All the plants selected are endemic to the existing Bundanon site, or have been introduced to the site at some point throughout the property’s history – by early settlers, the Boyds or tenantfarmers.”
