Cloud Studies is the first solo exhibition in Australia by Forensic Architecture, a research agency comprised of architects, artists, filmmakers, journalists, scientists, lawyers and other specialists who undertake investigations into human rights abuses, state violence and environmental crimes around the world.
Using the disciplinary tools of both architecture and forensics, Forensic Architecture have given rise to a new form of investigative practice that seeks to uncover, analyse and present evidence from the crimes of our recent past and consider the convergence of architecture, media, and violence.
In Cloud Studies, Forensic Architecture contend with the interconnectedness of global atmospheres. The work brings together eight recent investigations under a single theme; toxic clouds. In a year of bushfire, pandemic and protest, where toxic clouds colonise the air we breathe and shape the way we connect, Cloud Studies presents evidence of perseverance and resistance.
The exhibition is extended by related investigations and a publication, Responses to the Cloud, that explores the themes of Cloud Studies from a local context, with new writing by Joel Spring, Saba Bebawi, Jason De Santolo, Tom Melick, Nikki Lam, Thalia Anthony, Micaela Sahhar and curators Stella Rosa McDonald and Eleanor Zeichner. As part of our commitment to accessibility, audio recordings of these texts read by their authors are available below. Audio described tours of the exhibition are available on request.
