Chain of Ponds

Jude Roberts, Helen Hardess

9–26 Oct 2019

Drawing on Jude Roberts’ long-term connections to local communities, the artists’ immersion in the Maranoa and Warrego catchments reveal shared interests in contemporary discourses on land and water access and usage. Jude’s interest came from over twenty years on a pastoral property in the region. Helen Hardess’ metropolitan perspective was as an “outsider”, coming to an understanding of the histories and workings of agricultural practices in Australia. In July 2018 the artists returned to the Maranoa River, at the confluence of three water sources and a spiritual place for Gunggari peoples where they spent time with Elders and community to gain knowledge from the traditional custodians. The artists have since created work recalling histories, and considering shared futures for eco-systems in a changing climate and a time of contesting social issues. Chain of Ponds was a multi-media installation comprising works on paper, found objects, natural sediments and industrial materials, video, and cast and constructed objects.

This program takes place on the land of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation. We recognise that sovereignty was never ceded - this land is stolen land. We pay respects to Wurundjeri Elders, past, present and emerging, to the Elders from other communities and to any other Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islanders who might encounter or participate in the program.
