My mother is water, my father is wood is an assemblage of materials collected over six years of research into the Scandinavian history of Queensland. Images, documents and artefacts, collected as objects of history, collapse into a personal story of longing. An elemental visual language of wood and water is proposed for the triangulation of family history with the political and the aesthetic
Galleries 2 and 3 – Tree Line
TRUDI BRINCKMAN, LUCY GRIGGS, NICOLA PAGE, SASKIA PANDJI SAKTI, UTAKO SHINDO AND LINDA TEGG.
Tree Line: the encompassing area of inhabitable land for plants, animals and other interdependent species as dictated by environmental elements. A naturally occurring boundary, while appearing solid a tree line is created through a gradual transition in most places.
‘Tree Line’ is a collaborative exhibition presenting works across a broad range of practices including photography, video, painting, installation and performance, from a group of emerging artists who are currently based throughout Asia and Australia. The conceptualization of ‘Tree Line’ has been intended merely as an entry point, a state of flux or contention to initiate conversation andspark new directions in creative collaboration among a group of geographically diverse artists.
