Tina Havelock Stevens
Presented in association with Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts
Sydney-based Tina Havelock Stevens has emerged as a leading figure in contemporary Australian video and performance. Her background as a documentary filmmaker and drummer from the post-punk music scene has a direct influence on her practise where she works predominantly in video, music, sound, experimental documentary and performance.
Havelock Stevens’ moving image works reference the ambiguous and contradictory aspect of human nature, depicting landscapes and dwelling on sites that are often empty or abandoned. They speak of survival and fragility within urban, environmental and emotional spaces. In exhibition mode, Havelock Stevens offers a sublime series of video works accompanied by improvised sound scores – some recorded, some she performs live.
Visceral and immersive her video and performance work Thunderhead channels the energy of the meteorological phenomenon of a supercell.
