Speaking Beyond the Vitrine

No longer contained by ethno-museology, this work steps out of the vitrine as it speaks to losses and non-Indigenous Australian denials. Some of the forms  hold stories while others become acts of resistance to assert identity and claim palawa sovereignty.

Shown at Metro Arts, Brisbane 2018.
