FROLIC FREEZE 6: ARTICULATE PROJECT SPACE SYDNEY
My work explores the early 19th century Tasmanian frontier violence against the Palawa (Aboriginal Tasmanians) from my perspective as a descendant of the colonisers. The investigation into my family history has uncovered the murders of a significant number of Palawa in 1823 in retribution for the murder of my ancestor’s indentured stockkeeper. I use maps and outlines of Palawa Nation boundaries, although I acknowledge that the placing of these boundaries on the land is a Western contrivance as borders between groups of Aboriginal people requires deep knowledge. required deep knowledge.

Drawing from the work of Dutch master Rachel Ruysch, Wendy Miller’s ceramic floral Ruin’s toy with the still life tradition of momento mori by stretching out the narrative of decay over three shape-shifting bouquets. Accepting chance as a collaborator, one of these pieces remains unfired and will wilt over the course of the exhibition, allowing us to witness the unpredictable beauty of its gradual decline.”
