The Natural Estate

Laura Gillam, Joey Gracia and Callum Donoghue

19 October – 24 November 2019

In the peak of Tasmania’s tourism boom, The Natural Estate explores the alternate narratives and landscapes neglected by glossy pamphlets and travel magazines. It questions the popular representations of Tasmania as an island of dreams and possibilities, abundant with pristine wilderness and fine wine. Simultaneously, and on the contrary Tasmania is depicted as the ‘freeloading’ state, defined by statistics reporting on high crime, unemployment, teen pregnancies and growing homelessness. In The Natural Estate, three Tasmanian artists use their experiences of growing up in regional towns to question the schisms and parallels between these two defining narratives.

June 2019

The Swap across the Strait exhibition is now on display at Gallery Sunshine Everywhere (26 May – 22 June), featuring artworks by students of Sunshine College, Mother of God School and the Create and Make art classes of the Devonport Regional Gallery. The artworks are about what it’s like to live in Melbourne or Tasmania, and they also respond to questions and answers which have been sent backwards and forwards across the Strait.

All of the artworks will be travelling across the Bass Strait to Tasmania later in the year to be displayed at the Devonport Regional Gallery.

 

Below: An Echidna and a Tasmanian Devil travel to Melbourne on the Spirit of Tasmania to participate in the exhibition, and some of the artwork on display in Gallery Sunshine Everywhere.
