Joan Ross’ digital animations explore aspects of colonisation from the perspective of Aboriginal Australia. The Claiming of Things draws inspiration from John Glover’s colonial landscape painting, ‘The bath of Diana, Van Diemen’s Land’ (1837) and is the focal point for Ross’ wry and subversive interventions.
Opening Friday 5 November, 2021. Bookings essential for the Opening Event.
