Tim Georgeson and William Barton


The Hidden


6 May – 9 July 2023


The Hidden is a sound and film installation by Australian filmmaker and artist Tim Georgeson and composer, performer and proud Kalkadunga man, William Barton. It offers a personal account of the Bundanon land and waterscapes in New South Wales, Australia.

Working together for the first time, Georgeson and Barton undertook an artistic residency at Bundanon in 2021, composing, recording and experimenting in response to Wodi Wodi Country. They continued this close collaboration offsite, weaving together their responses through an ongoing exchange of material.

Anchored by Barton’s compositions, Georgeson’s films are edited in distinct acts, revealing unseen interactions between sunlight, moonlight, fog and wind. Together, sound and image form a meditation on the ancient knowledge and histories held within the earth, water and skies of this place.

The Hidden is accompanied by a selection of Georgeson’s photographs that capture the immediacy of the natural phenomena experienced at Bundanon.
