Archive Project - Lichens

Human language(s) creates the boundaries within the taxonomies that we recognise as true.

Lichens, which exists on the overlapping of three species (fungi, algae and bacteria) are an example
of the fallacy of this logic that exclusively assigns one entity to one specie only.

This research project traces back from the exterior appearance - the point at which the eyes tries to
seek uniformity for the purpose of identification - to the possible underlying grid
where the predictability of patterns begins becoming uncertain.

The artist acknowledges and pays respect to the traditional custodians of the Country on which she lives and works.

The artist also acknowledges the impact colonialism has had on Aboriginal Country and Aboriginal peoples and that this impact continues to be felt today.

Always was, always will be, Aboriginal land.
