TWIG Esperance

TWIG Esperance sawmulti-artform artist Trevor Flinn working with farming families in the Esperance region to develop site-specific works on their properties. Trevor's presence and creation of unusual sculptural works that used farm equipment and natural materials provided an impetus for new ways of seeing the land and for conversations about life in rural Western Australia to emerge.

The Esperance project was based on the innovative TWIG project that took place in Victoria during 2012 across the Mallee and southern Riverina regions through a partnership with Australia's Creative Rural Economy team. At the end of each farm residency, a small community celebration was held, with fire playing a key role both in the sculptural work and in bringing people together to share stories and experiences.

The project ran during September 2014.
