'Cattle and Cane' at Campbell Arcade

'Cattle and Cane' at Campbell Arcade

A solo curatorial project supported by The City of Melbourne and Creative Spaces, 'Cattle and Cane' takes place in the historic Campbell Arcade - a space connecting Degraves and Flinders Streets to Flinders Street Station. 

Inspired by Brisbane band The Go-Betweens' musings on nostalgia, home and the Australian landscape, Cattle and Cane looks at how we relate to and understand the stolen land on which we live. Through the lens of 12 emerging Australian artists and creatives, Cattle and Cane delves into rural, regional and metropolitan understandings of place through an exploration of housing, historical narratives, the backyard, flora and fauna, religion and symbolism.

I created a cut-and-paste travel-brochure-style essay contribution for the exhibition to fit in with the conceptual themes of the exhibition.
