ALREADY OCCUPIED: ONGOING CONNECTIONS
This new work brings out the Voice of Aboriginal Sovereignty I hear in the land. Exploring meanings that I see in the Hi Vis materials used in constructions and destructions on country. Highlighting that the covering over of country by the constructions of European occupation does nothing to erase Aboriginal Culture.
The barrier mesh in this work is hand woven from used plastic bags and is left open so as not to isolate one area of country from it’s ongoing connections.
Work featured in the closing of Cross Currents exhibition for Gold Coast Aboriginal Artist Camp 2017
