Peta Clancy’s photographic series ‘Undercurrent’ is currently on display at Noosa Regional Art Gallery. Undercurrent is a series of photographic works documenting an underwater massacre site on Dja Dja Wurrung Country.
“Undercurrent was first conceptualised during a 12-month residency with the Koorie Heritage Trust in Melbourne. During her residency (Clancy) travelled to Central Victoria, researching frontier violence and Dja Dja Wurring massacre sites there in close consultation with Traditional Owners. The resulting body of work is physically and temporally layered. Moving back and forth between past and present, it is presented as images upon images, with one landscape layered onto another through a painstaking process of documentation and re-photography.” – excerpt from Peta Clancy: Undercurrent catalogue essay by Rachel Kent, Chief Curator, Museum of Contemporary Art Australia.
The exhibition is on display from 26 March to 16 May 2021. Read More.
