Postcard from the Kimberley is the second of six FREE pubic programs that will be presented during the course of the SUPER FIELD exhibition.

During a residency in the Kimberley region of Western Australian, Madelynne Cornish and Philip Samartzis experienced the devastating effect of the Turkey Creek flood on the remote Indigenous community of Warmun. In response, both artists worked closely with the local communities to make field recordings. In conversation with Design Hub curators Kate Rhodes and Fleur Watson, they will discuss the techniques that were developed to document their experience of place.

FLOOD is the outcome of the Tura New Music Remote Residency program. Many thanks to Tura New Music and the Indigenous community of Warmun for making the residency possible.
