Salt Water: Episodes 1-3


SALTWATER is a cluster of 3 podcast episodes Shore, Waves and Tides. Through Saltwater we are wading together through ideas of home, distance, transit, ancestry and interconnectedness. 


CANVAS: Unframing Art & Ideas: Shore (1/3 in Saltwater)

This episode is Shore, the first of three episodes exploring the theme of ‘Salt Water’. In this episode we chat with Emily McDaniel, a storyteller, curator and educator from the Kalari Clan of the Wiradjuri Nation, about connecting to Country and navigating 60,000 years of storytelling along Warrane, the Sydney Harbour shoreline. Hoda Afshar speakers to us from London about her video work Remain, filmed in 2018 on Manus Island in Papua New Guinea in collaboration with Kurdish-Iranian refugee Behrouz Boochani. And we talk about coastlines awash with histories with Australian-Balinese artist and researcher Leyla Stevens as we listen to audio excerpts from her video work Their Sea Is Always Hungry.



CANVAS: Unframing Art & Ideas: Waves (2/3 in Saltwater)

This episode is Waves, the second of three episodes exploring the theme of ‘Salt Water’. In this episode we chat with Paula do Prado and Tomas Marinangeli, two visual artists and mother and son who have been working together to explore the ocean as a spiritual place and a space of crossing over. Though working together they’ve found themselves reflecting on the spiritual connection their ancestors had with the sea and how these intergenerational experiences and memories play out today. Tomas also sings us a song! We hear from artist and musician Alexandra Spence as she reimagines the relationships between the listener, the object and the surrounding environment with her audio piece The Sea, The Sea.



CANVAS: Unframing Art & Ideas: Tides (3/3 in Saltwater)

This episode is Tides, the last of three episodes exploring the them of ‘Salt Water’. In this episode we chat with Angela Tiatia as she unpacks her video and performance work Holding On. We hear Anja Kanngieser’s interactive audio walk, Submersion, as it reflected on sea levels rising, islands submerging and oceans flowing. And we go to a conversation with Latai Taumoepeau about Latai’s recent performance work The Last Resort in the 22nd Biennale of Sydney, Nirin.
