ISLAND is about Comerong Island in the estuary of the Shoalhaven River.
A mixed media exploration; “ISLAND.” ISLAND is both the particular island - Comerong - at the head of the Shoalhaven River and also the imaginal idea of “Island” as separate and remote. My thought is that Comerong challenges that idea as it is an island in relationship, surrounded by two rivers and the sea while being overseen by Coolangatta/Cullunghutti Mountain; relationships that have spacial, ecological and cultural dimensions. Photographs, sculpture, paintings and moving image works are a part of this exploration.
