Burrow is a collaborative project between Polly Stanton (AUS) and Anja Kanngieser (UK/AUS), bringing together radiophonic narrative with sound composition and visual documentary. Born from a desire to explore what a feminist geophilosophy of sound would be, it takes the Earth as a provocation for thought and intervention.
Drawing from geographical and feminist methods, it seeks to work across art and social inquiry to develop a creative practice that is as aesthetically engaged as it is politically and ecologically. As a feminist project it brings to the forefront not only the ways in which sensitivities to listening, materiality and embodiment, and affect are prescribed as feminised labour, but also the highly asymmetrical gendered, radicalised and classed dimensions of sound art production within systems of capital. Through this lens it aims to explore and question what it means to listen to the environment, and to participate in the world at a time of deep ecological and economic crisis. The tension of sound between states, sound in and of the Earth, the nonhuman and human, is what Burrow approaches.
