To celebrate and reflect on this exhibition as it comes to an end, Wyndham Art Gallery is delighted to announce the release of a floor talk video featuring powerhouse contemporary artist and former Wyndham Art Gallery co-curator Maree Clarke, in conversation with current co-curator Dr. Megan Evans.
In this recording, Maree reflects on Gough’s exhibition and discusses the work in relation to her own practice, which centres on healing and reconnection to cultural heritage; as well as her personal connection to Tasmania through her ancestral ties to Trawlwoolway.
Maree Clarke is a Yorta Yorta/Wamba Wamba/Mutti Mutti/Boonwurrung woman who has been a practicing artist, working and living in Melbourne for the last three decades and was co-curator at Wyndham Art Gallery from 2015 – 2019.
In TRUE LIES (and alibis) at Wyndham Art Gallery, Trawlwoolway artist Julie Gough presents a multi-layered installation focusing on Tasmanian Aboriginal children taken by colonists in the early 1800s, including her ancestor Dalrymple Briggs, who lived with a colonial surgeon and his wife as a child.
The recording will go live on Thursday 3rd September at 6pm.
