Don’t Fence Me In - Amala Groom & Dale Collier

When:
Every day until Sun 16 Jun 2019
Details:
Don’t Fence Me In is an art work about fencing land according to the logic of property ownership rather than how the land might be used by other value systems such Indigenous culture.

As a basic form of architecture, fence lines are drawn to keep people out, animals in, and reassure owners about the security of their property. The construction of a fence can be seen as a violent intrusion into native habitats; a sign of disassociation that cuts across song lines with unrelated ownership, order and control. They are often comprised of strangling rusty wire and rotten timber posts that fall apart with time, sometimes a metaphor for old Australian pioneering dreams that fought tirelessly to erect them.

Don’t Fence Me In is a site-specific creative action that pulls apart and considers ideas of labour in relation to the boundaries and barriers that we place upon ourselves, each other and upon Country.
