Australian Indigenous artist Judy Watson (b. 1959) shows new paintings, video and installation, exemplifying her interest in sacred sites in the light of her family history.
Watson has recently travelled to see sites of prehistorical significance in the UK – standing stones, circles and hill figures, e.g. Avebury, Uffingham, Stonehenge – suggesting a more balanced and sustainable relationship between humanity and the rest of the natural world. It chimes in with a description of her most recent gallery exhibition in Australia: “exploring Indigenous strength and resilience in the face of climate change and other pressures”.
Exhibition organised by Ikon Gallery and TarraWarra Museum of Art with consultant curator Hetti Perkins.
