Detritus Springs marks Jill Orr’s first exhibition at This Is No Fantasy. Orr has delighted, shocked and moved audiences through her performance installations in Australia and internationally. Initially commissioned for the Biennale of Australian Art, Detritus Springs is a performance, installation and video arising from a smoke filled place of post-apocalyptic illusion, re-creating potential for new life in an unfamiliar form.
Orr’s work centres on issues of the psycho-social and environmental where she draws on land and identities as they are shaped with the environment be it country or urban locales. Her practice grapples with the balance and discord that exists at the heart of relations between the human spirit, art and nature.
