    TEST RUN: Work of First Nations artist Gail Harradine is projected onto Natimuk’s GrainCorp silos.

Natimuk silo projection night test

A test art projection at Natimuk GrainCorp silos on Saturday featured work by First Nations artists Gail Harradine and Tanisha Lovett.

Natimuk arts organisation ACT Natimuk organised the projection night, which reflected work around family and ‘connection to place’.

In the development of her work, Harradine worked with First Nations producer Savanna Kruger and family Elders.

The test night was part  of plans to develop a new projection residency idea, which might lead to Natimuk silos hosting regular artistic projections.

The development process included providing an opportunity for the Natimuk community to view the projection and provide feedback on the idea, such as how often and for how long projections should run.

ACT Natimuk general co-manager Hannah French said the concept was one her organisation would like to further develop in consultation with the community. “We are certainly keen to hear what the Natimuk community thinks of the idea. Ideally it is a chance for Natimuk to attract visitors looking to experience silo art at night,” she said.

“Natimuk artists have been experimenting with creatively responding to the silos for nearly 20 years, and we want to celebrate this legacy.”

The projection test night also featured work developed at a community workshop last month.
