EMBODIMENTS 2021–22 is a multi-channel sound artwork that creates a calming space of introspection and respite in response to the commercial and industrial soundscape of the city.

Aarti Jadu began her sound journey in the context of devotional music originating from India. Being a first generation “Australian” artist, Jadu’s practice naturally bridges diverse ideologies for the survival of her own integrity. She fervently explores voice through electronics to greater understand energy and its relationship to potential. Her recent work in trauma-informed voice workshops and somatics, along with years of study in yoga and raga music, forged a path to collaborate with neuroscience graduates to communicate and discuss matters of human experience, philosophy and science.

Test Sites Phase 2  is curated by Arie Rain Glorie, and produced by the City of Melbourne and Testing Grounds.

A trace object from this project will also be presented at ACCA, in the Project Space: The Hoarding over the duration of the exhibition.
