Whose time are we on?

While affirming the continuity of a proud palawa heritage, in the work Whose time are we on? the artist lays bare steel wool’s coarse, abrasive qualities and colonialism’s systematic scouring of palawa sovereignty. This work suggests with tangible immediacy the ongoing violence perpetrated against palawa people over the centuries and explores complex entwined cultural histories with their inherent asymmetries of power.
