Brisbane-based artist Caitlin Franzmann’s 'Tree-telling' returns to MPavilion in 2018.

In Tree-telling, Franzmann deploys hand-crafted divination cards as the trigger for experimental one-on-one encounters between the artist and individual participants. The seven cards are paired with seven sound compositions, each corresponding to a tree in the Queen Victoria Gardens surrounding the MPavilion: Canary Island Palm, River Red Gum, London Plane, Algerian Oak, Jacaranda, Atlas Cedar and Lilly Pilly.

Selecting a card from the deck, visitors embark on a journey that proceeds from Tarot reading, to a shared walk from MPavilion to their chosen tree and back, to experimental listening session.

Music for the original Tree-telling sonic works is composed by David M. Thomas.

'Tree-telling' is a Liquid Architecture project developed for MPavilion.

LIQUID ARCHITECTURE is an Australian organisation for artists working with sound. LA investigates the sounds themselves, but also the ideas communicated about, and the meaning of, sound and listening.
