Composing Life / Silent Giants
TWO CITIES is an accumulation work created as part of a Berlin residency Lotte completed last year, plus a progression of her work since arriving back in Sydney.
Her Berlin project 'Composing Life' was an exercise in storytelling and became a map of intersecting narratives. Formed from the idea that through storytelling we experience empathy, nuances arose from the bias created by retelling a narrative from a perspective that is not your own.
Returning to Australia with lingering thoughts on the theme of empathy, her latest works 'Silent Giants' takes a more critical look at empathy. 'Silent Giants' is a project that considers subtler forms of bias, discomfort, or oppression that we may justify for our own benefit or convenience.
