Jill Orr has delighted, shocked and moved audiences through performance installations since the late 1970s. Her work draws on land and identities as they are shaped in, on and with the environment—be it country or urban locales—and grapples with the balance and discord that exists at the heart of relations between the human spirit, art and nature. In 2012, Jill presented The Promised Land, to international acclaim, at the inaugural Venice International Performance Art Week; in 2014, she presented at the Bipolar Performance Art Meeting in Sopot, Poland, and mesmerised audiences with her work at the MAP Festival in Melaka, Malaysia. Jill is a recipient of the Australia Council Fellowship, and has recently completed her latest body of work, Antipodean Epic. Developed from site-specific performative photographs and video, the work culminated in a live performance for the Mildura Palimpsest Biennale in October 2015.
