12 November to 20 November 2020 at Burleigh Hub, Justins Park, Burleigh Heads
Presented by BLEACH, with contributions from Justine Dillon, Tarni Eastwood, Lola Harward, Emily Kafoa, Desert-Rain Magpie, Maureen Newton, Trisha Newton, Gbrielle Quakawoot, Tracy Ritson, Skye Shannon and Joyce Summers.
Inspired by nature’s ancient luminary navigators, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women collaborate to weave a story of skies through place and time. Join us under the stars on even the sunniest of days to view this mesmerising observatory.
Wonderful to see artist Glennys Briggs at NorthSite in Cairns and hear more about her artwork ‘Sweet Damper’ and her other works in Rite of Passage.
“Briggs is a proud Taungurung-Yorta Yorta woman, exploring her deep cultural connection to land through printmaking, painting, sculpture and installation.
Her powerful and confrontational work asks us to reflect on, and question, our shared history and relationship to this country. Screen printed possum skins in ‘Sweet damper’ (2017) reference the practice of adding arsenic to flour, as a means of mass poisoning Aboriginal people.”
Tune in tomorrow afternoon to hear Glennys and fellow artist Nici Cumpston OAM discussing their work with exhibition curator Shannon Brett.
12 – 14 November 2020 and 20 – 21 November 2020
Experience Gold Coast-based artist Glennys Briggs’ monumental, once-in-a-lifetime artwork on the buildings of Chez Nous on Chevron. The giant work envelops an entire home, and remains until the buildings are demolished. When it’s gone, it’s gone.
