Reminiscence pays tribute to Judith Wright and her life. On reflection Judith was a fiercely intelligent, strong and passionate woman who cared deeply about the land of her birth and the first people of her beloved country, Australia.
Artist, Fiona Rafferty and Ceramicist, Frances Smith have worked collaboratively to produce a body of work that celebrates and pays homage to Judith Wright.
Grounded presents the outcome of two residencies; one in the Gaelic speaking Outer Hebrides of Scotland and the other with the Australian Aboriginal nations of the Central Australian desert and the plains of Western Queensland.
Grounded features photography, sound, audiovisual, language and prose; with inspiration drawn from landscape and stories shared by the local people. Judith’s artistic interpretation addresses issues surrounding connection to land, language, and each other for environmental and personal wellbeing.
