Mona Foma is over for another year, with the Clarence community treated to the incredible works ‘Climate Bites’ and ‘Chloe Kim: 100 Hours’.
The works were presented as part of the Clarence City Council’s partnership with the world-renowned summer festival, and follows the council’s commitment to build formal relationships with major festivals and present high-quality projects to the local community.
Held in the Rosny Barn, ‘Climate Notes’ by Anna McMicheal and Louise Devenish was presented as both an installation able to be viewed f0r free over the course of three days, as as a ticketed performance piece.
Clarence also hosted world-renowned percussionist Chloe Kim, who toured across Tasmania playing drums for a total of 100 hours over 10 days.
Kim spent two gruelling ten-hour days drumming at the Rosny Barn and on the Bellerive Boardwalk, before completing her incredible feat of endurance at Mona on 26 February.
Clarence Mayor Brendan Blomeley said hosting two such evocative projects was a huge coup for Clarence.
‘Hosting these two world-class projects in our city sends a clear message that Clarence is a vibrant and culturally rich place to live, work and play,’ he said.
‘Mona and the Mona Foma Festival continue to have a huge impact on the creative and cultural experiences of Tasmanians, and it brings us great pride to be partnering with a festival of such significant cultural merit.’
