Rosemary Laing is a renowned Australian artist who has worked with photography since the late 1980s. This exhibition includes major works that demonstrate her interest in how Australians have both perceived and moved through the landscape, shifting between dramatic vistas in works such as the leak and one dozen unnatural disasters in the Australian landscape series, through to her interventions in the thickest of bushland in The Paper and groundspeed series. Colonisation, political borders and boundaries, and the interface of the built and natural environment are persistent themes explored in the exhibition which will also feature a new series of works.
