Jill Orr (b.1952) has delighted, shocked and moved
audiences through her performance installations which she
has presented in cities such as Paris, Beijing, Hong Kong,
Amsterdam, Antwerp New York, Toronto, Quebec City, Graz,
Hong Kong, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Brisbane
from the late 1970s to now. Orr’s work centres on issues of
the psycho-social and environmental where she draws on
land and identities as they are shaped in, on and with the
environment, be it country or urban locales.
