What Privilege? – The Colony: When you enter the Colony, who comes to visit? Navigate a bivouac of menacing, invasive colonies and framed colonial beliefs, to experience how Ngarrindjeri continue to maintain and share their cultural values.
The Colony is an immersive installation, combining projection work, line art, poetry and audio-visual provocations. This cross-cultural experiment was created by Jen Lyons-Reid [concept, line art, text], Carl Kuddell [concept, sculpture, text] and Ngarrindjeri man Clyde Rigney Jnr [concept, text].
What is your experience of whiteness and identity in the context of Treaty and colonization? How do we want to share our limited time on this planet? How do we come to terms?
The work will be be launched at the Regional Gallery Murray Bridge on June 15th to July 22nd 2018, and then travel to Goolwa in 2019.
Opening Sunday June 17 at 2.30pm, with a Welcome to Country by Ngarrindjeri Elder Clyde Rigney Snr, and drinks and nibbles. See you there!
