10 - 12 FEB | THE LARGE BEINGS | GERMAINE PNG
Across the world from one another, two enormous beings with very different relationships to humans
are brought together, through certain ecological similarities, from opposite ends of the Earth. Their stories were made known through the use of an ancient oral tradition, myths, commonly utilised to explain sonic and natural phenomena.
Following a visit in Singapore and a residency at the Sound Art Lab in Struer, Denmark, the findings of research on the mythology of two giant non-humans who have had a profound impact on local humans in very different ways, are presented here. Their deaths were dis/honoured in contrasting ways and were bound by common waterways.
