Land Aid Collective is a collaborative research based practice from UNSW that draws on the inter disciplinary experience of: artist + PhD candidate Cathe Stack; artist and architecture academic Dr Ainslie Murray, and landscape architect, academic and urban designer, Dr Joshua Zeunert.

Land Aid Collective evolved through a sustained discourse that identifies landscape as a driving force in the shaping of artefact and understandings of place.

United by a deep abiding connection to landscape, their work is a meditation on Australian cultural relationships with the land and the coalescence of beauty and terror in the landscape. During the residency they will develop a shared methodology that enhances, explores and investigates human connectivity and participation in shared landscapes.

In residence at Bundanon

Land Aid Collective will engage a triangulation model that utilises aquatic, terrestrial and aerial modes to physically engage with the Shoalhaven landscape, following the premise of “…the characteristic Shoalhaven landscape, the division into thirds: sky, earth, water.” Darleen Bungey, in Arthur, Boyd: A Life.

A key component to this model are immersive in-situ experiences of landscape. Prior investigation of pre- and post-infrastructural transformation states and meanings of the Shoalhaven River system through archival narratives, maps and research form a parallel platform to the in-situ explorations. The intention of LAC is not to preclude the relationships between these axis points but rather to explore unfettered, creative possibilities in the immediacy of a shared residency. Our individual practices share drawing, photography/film, mapping and writing that we intend to utilise as precursors to larger scale three dimensional outcomes.

Land Aid Collective is supported by University of New South Wales for the Bundanon 2022 Residency.
