Tineke Van der Eecken: Tributaries


Museum of the Great Southern
Residency Road, Albany / Kinjarling



Friday 5 July 2024 – Wednesday 28 August 2024



Tributaries explores the fibres of flora, fauna, and human systems. 

It includes jewellery, small fine metal sculptures, and objects formed by corrosion casting, a process by which resin is injected into animal organs and other biological systems to form moulds of internal spaces.

These objects are placed in dialogue with photographic images and poetry that document the thrum of life and death in environmental arterial systems, connecting root, river, skeleton, and vein.

Tributaries is both a contemporary memento mori and a reminder of the constantly changing states of all organic matter, including our own bodies – a testament to the interconnection of human, animal and environment.
