Nature Identities: Off the Wall

Research output: Artistic and non-textual formExhibitionArt in coproduction

Abstract

Nurture Identities is a multimedia installation that was exhibited in 2015 at Yarta Purtli Gallery, Port Augusta in South Australia. This work was motivation by my feelings of loss and ungroundedness as a result of immigration. In searching for images, impressions and experiences in the land and nature I adopted as my new home, I hoped to find new connections. Nurturing the soul through experiences that take people close to their natural environments promotes healing. This was my hope and search for finding belonging in the beauty of the Eyre Peninsula's environment. Images were captured in Coffin Bay, while the seaweed weaves were produced on a beach in Whyalla, South Australia.
