Works from the Prison on the Landscape, solo exhibition at WAYOUT Artspace, 71 Angus Avenue, Kandos, NSW.
Opening Saturday May 8, 2 – 4 pm
WAYOUT: A Cementa initiative
Elizabeth Day uses the idea and image of the ’prison on the landscape’ to examine the prison as an ongoing and difficult intersection of British and indigenous law. Three interrelated works exploring this theme will be shown at WAYOUT. A large knitted work made from unravelled and new baby garments expressing the idea of damage transferred through generations. Sections of the ‘wall’ work, Invisible Words/Invisible Worlds series, comprising woollen text works will sit alongside electron magnified images of one atom thick carbon nanotubes (that bear a resemblance to the unravelled wool tendrils), referencing the embedded histories of damage incurred by colonisation.
Cementa is supported by the NSW Government through Create NSW.
