A history of wind is India Zegan’s new multi-part project. The first chapter, The tree would only be found at higher altitudes (2015-2016) presents a suite of seven large automatic drawings that allegorise slow building, wild weather events. To steer us through unknowable waters, these cartographical drawings imagine an encyclopedic study of cloud patterns. Zegan will also present a selection of new and recent works that bookend and contextualise these new drawings.
India Zegan is a Sydney-based conceptual artist who works in sculpture, installation and drawing. This is her first solo exhibition in Canberra.Image: The tree would only be found at higher altittudes, 2015-2016, 150cm x 100cm, photograph by Felicity Jenkins; courtesy of the artist
