At the Centre for Contemporary Photography (CCP), Melbourne Australia – 22 January to 14 March 2010
Expedition investigates the significance of our ongoing relationship with the land and the identity of our nation. The show is an investigation into the formation of our cultural psyche resulting from the Aussie adventurer determination to discover and lay claim to sites, locations and territories. It is not based on any one historical expedition, nor is it a cartographic exercise, but rather a reflection on the internal and intentional spaces within the country, and how these act as historical and contemporary markers for defining aspects of our national identity.
Of particular interest are areas within Australia, within Terra, that emphasize aspects of our western heritage, our origin, and the way this relates to our relationship with the land.
