I have a new exhibition installed at Bargoonga Nganjin, the new stunningly designed North Fitzroy Library in the City of Yarra.
Coastal collection continues my exploration of ‘the new wild’ by examining coastal areas in and around Melbourne where introduced species grow wild. In this installation the lumens prints of Coprosma repens (mirror bush) collected from Kilcunda in the Bass Coast, have been reproduced as a wallpaper frieze. Black-and-white photographs in the exhibition capture introduced species such as African boxthorn, soursob, agapanthus, hare’s tail, mirror bush and fireweed at Kilcunda and Dendy Street Street Beach dune in Brighton.
