Last Light, Beaver Galleries, Canberra
16th August – 2nd September 2018
This exhibition explores the impact on, and loss of, the Australian landscape in the drive to extract fossil fuels that lie below the earth’s surface. It also reflects on the ramifications of this industry for the traditional Indigenous owners of the land. This merging of landscape and industry speaks of our failure to invest in a renewable future, as coal, oil and gas extraction dominate the power industry. Meanwhile standing in a rapidly changing environment, the figure represents both the catalyst and the casualty of these actions.
