Where Lakes Once Had Water at Drill Hall Gallery, Canberra

Where Lakes Once Had Water is a sensorial longform video that transports us to remote ancient dry lakes of Australia's Northern Territory. The work takes us on an imaginative journey, exploring the labour of scientists and traditional owners as they dig and delve into the past, reading the signs and signals in the landscape, over concepts of deep time. Commissioned by ARC Centre of Excellence for Australian Biodiversity and Heritage (CABAH) in conjuction with Bundanon.

What Listening Knows at Messums Wiltshire, UK

What Listening Knows creatively interrogates different concepts around the act of listening, as if listening were the primary mode of sensing the world. Across three spectacular screens, the camera choreography is both grounded and ungrounded, imbued with an acoustic consciousness.

What Listening Knows is being presented as a solo exhibition across the extensive Barn gallery at Messums Wiltshire. The filming was undertaken in Wiltshire in the Summer of 2019, when Leber and Chesworth were Messums Wiltshire’s first artists-in-residence.

Mission Crimps at Fondation Fiminco, Paris

01 Sonia Leber David Chesworth Mission Crimps P1044854 600w w
Mission Crimps presents a scenario that is audible as much as visible, reminding us of the non-singularity of what we are seeing. The calibrations and configurations of the human mind find analogous views via an old telephone exchange with its reams of colourful cabling, metallic switches and exchange circuits.

Curator: Anabelle Lacroix
