BeLonging: Embodied Commentaries Inspired by Place

Saturday, June 27, 2015 – 12:00 – Saturday, July 11, 2015 – 17:00
Location: ANU School of Art Foyer Gallery

BeLonging: embodied commentaries inspired by place is an exhibition of works by over 140 members of The Australian Ceramics Association. It showcases the creativity and diversity of contemporary Australian ceramic practice. It also aims to harness clay as a repository of personal stories, as a medium to exchange ideas and explore complex interrelationships between the cultures of this country. Works will range from sculptural and functional to conceptual; some will be handbuilt, others wheelthrown and many will experiment with new technologies. The size of the works has been limited to no larger than 15cms in any dimension.

My Statement: “Self Portrait as Bush”

The Australian bush has held a place in my heart since my childhood in Jannali “Place of the Moon” (translated from local Dh’arawal language), south of Sydney. It is place of the trees, creeks, birds and stars. I admire its wisdom, mystery and determination to survive.

Although I am Anglo, I am indigenous to Jannali. I am refreshed and inspired by just sitting in its landscape, immersed, safe and cared for by the spirit of the place.

I am not separate from it. This is my sacred space.
