Opening event: Thurs, 1 November, 6-8pm
Gentle A Path is an exhibition of photographic, sound and video work exploring the humble gestures of the Ngangkiparingka/Onkaparinga River. The artwork stems from observing and contemplating the quiet fluidity of the river in its passage over the land; the elements of earth and water are seamlessly balancing and equally compromising to allow for the continuous existence of the other. Through looking to these humble relationships in the land I wonder how we can learn to bring more balance and equality into our human relationships with one another, between different cultures and our relationships with the land itself.
This artwork was created during a 3 month residency at Sauerbier House thanks to the City of Onkaparinga.
I respectfully acknowledge and recognise that this exhibition and artworks created along the Ngangkiparingka/Onkaparinga River has taken place on traditional and sacred land of the Kaurna people. I honor and pay respect to Elders past present and emerging.
