Exhibition: The Overwintering Project Westernport

Rea Dennis’ work Intertidal (3 channel video) an investigation of somatic rhythms associated with migratory shorebird habitat is showing at Mornington Peninsular Regional Gallery as part of The Overwintering Project Westernport, project curator by Kate Gorringe-Smith and gallery curator Danny Lacy, until 23 May 2021. This exhibition has included key community engagement practices to communicate about the essential nature of Westernport habitat to the migratory shorebirds and as a critical habitat on the flyway, including a performance series entitled Stories from Home, that Dennis has curated as part of Migratory Shorebird Day on 8 May, funded by East-Asian Australasian Flyways Partnership, in which experiences of human migration feature alongside the environmental messages.
