Director Biography - Tivien Chrysanthe Andrews-Homerang, Will Ilbery

Will and Tivien were both born and raised in Ngunnawal and Ngambri Country. They have a long lasting friendship that started in kindergarten. In August 2023 Tivien experienced their first breakup and as most artists do, they decided to turn their pain into art - a solo multisensory art exhibition and LP release also to be precise. Will and Tivien’s joint efforts led to the creation of the emotionally stirring short film "Heartbreak & Herbal Tea," entirely filmed using an old handheld video camera. The film was projected on a loop onto fabric in the exhibition space. Heartbreak & Herbal Tea serves as a testament to Will and Tivien’s combined dedication which led to an emotionally rich and visually captivating film. You can read more about the Heartbreak & Herbal Tea project on Tivien’s website: https://sites.google.com/view/tivien/about
and stream “Heartbreak and Herbal Tea” (the LP) on all streaming platforms.
