Terra inFirma: Sovereignty and Memory

Next date: Wednesday, 23 September 2020 | 10:00 AM to 05:00 PM

Gary Carsley

In the year marking the 250th anniversary of James Cook’s arrival in Australia, and with the Black Lives Matter movement bringing focus to the on-going impacts of colonisation around the world, Terra inFirma could not be more timely.

First Nations and culturally diverse artists share their stories of history, heritage and identity with a focus on the experiences of communities represented in Blacktown. In Terra inFirma: Sovereignty and Memory, artists reflect upon the complexity and significance of Country, not limited to the physical grounds we stand on, but the histories and experiences absorbed by that land.

An effigy of James Cook’s Cottage in Melbourne is destroyed; maps of Blacktown are decolonised; and the histories of Australia and South East Asia are linked through the narrative of dispossession among work by artists Alex Byrne, Gary Carsley, Dean Cross, Brian Fuata, Jasmine Guffond, Jumaadi, Leanne Tobin, Julie Vulcan and Judy Watson.

An online launch of the Terra inFirma: Sovereignty and Memory program took place on Thursday 10 September at The Leo Kelly Blacktown Arts Centre. Watch the video here.
