MEGAN COPE – ‘Deep Water’
Megan Cope has a diverse practice that investigates issues relating to identity, the environment, and mapping practices. She is a descendant from the Quandamooka region (North Stradbroke Island) in South East QLD and through her art, explores decolonising methodologies which have become a primary concern in her work.
Her recent work focuses heavily on the toponymy (the study of place names) and geomorphology (the study of the nature and history of landforms) of heavily populated tourist destinations along the east coast of Australia; locations many Australians hold a personal affiliation to.
ARCHIE MOORE – ‘Ten Missions From God’
Archie Moore works in a variety of media, from paper sculptures and audio/visual works to installation and drawing, to explore the constructs of landscape, language and history, particularly as they relate to Aboriginal experience of colonisation and the perpetuation of Christianity in Australia.
Looking at photos of Queensland Aboriginal Missions, Moore has carefully dissected the pages of Bibles to form the timeless sculptural signifiers of Christian Imperialism; the Mission Church.
