No upcoming dates
Ghostwater deals with the subject of Solastalgia -the psychological distress caused by environmental change. Danja's sculptures in steel and bone evoke ghost ships and skeletal creatures. The works are intended to bring about reflections on the dawning anthropocene’s effect on the planet. Jamie’s digital images of the landscape west of Alice Springs show still and reflective landscapes that bely the trauma of their history. They focus on the intertwined matters of ecological concerns and historical trauma. He depicts landscapes that show changing climate, changing history and changing regard.
