Garden Reflexxx is the creative partnership of Eora/Sydney based film-obsessives Jen Atherton and André Shannon working predominantly with trans/queer artists. Operating as an intermedia group their productions are informed by community art practice and industry-critical theory in a search for natural bridges between independence, interdepedence and arthouse production.

 Garden Reflexxx’s singular open-filmmaker artistry upends mono-director banality, meditating on group play and experimental making. Their works cut resourcefully between improvisation, videographic imagination, spiritual logic, impulse, and the mistakes-curious family movie. Permitting a form of neo-intimate portrait film. In their world words outrace ideas, crashing at the finish line - talk explosions as a penultimate monument. Collapsing through industry burnout or excessive artmaking lands an oeuvre of films, installations, criticism, radio, and iPhone poetry. A practice of interminably ongoing rushes-party bedroom productions where Time and Patience are one candle burning at both ends. The result? An inexhaustible enthusiasm for everything-film that finds humanism out of order and representation immediate: random-family orientated and realistic. By journeying through, their films create a seduction of spectacle. The chaos of relationships. Metropolitan situations without role models. Super-natural gay films.

Working and living on stolen Aboriginal Land: the land of the Gadigal and Wangal People of the Eora Nation.

Sovereignty was never ceded.

Always was, always will be Aboriginal Land.
