The Artist and Her Work utilises this unusual juxtaposition to showcase the breadth and depth of women’s art practice, replicating the dense and vibrant hanging style of the collection’s original domestic context.

The exhibition will also incorporate the WA launch of the Indigenous Jewellery Project,
Australia’s first and only National Indigenous Contemporary Jewellery project.

Opening in NAIDOC week this group exhibition highlights the importance of country through imagery and storytelling. A visual exploration of complex stories around the geography of the land and narratives associated with different times, this exhibition has been sourced by Artitja Fine Art Gallery from some of the most remote and established art centres throughout Western Australia.

With over 40 artists from regions as distant as Kalumburu and Balgo in the Kimberley,
to the Pilbara and Tjukurlu in the western desert and Kalka on the WA/SA/NT border,
the exhibition gives an insight into the cultural importance of place and story.

The exhibition will also incorporate the WA launch of the Indigenous Jewellery Project,
Australia’s first and only National Indigenous Contemporary Jewellery project.

Description

Experiments were undertaken by the government agency in the hope that the behaviour of these insects would assist with the identification of gold deposits and lead to increased efficiency in gold exploration.

Nicholas Mangan takes this research as the outline for a sculptural installation that includes archival documentation and field footage produced by the artist to imagine the possible outcomes leading from this human imposition.
