The Departure was first exhibited in :
"A wallaby once sat here, small acts of celebration and concern, ecology and the feminine" 2016.
Curated by Lyndal Jones as part of The Avoca Project Inc. Avoca.
The Departure explores notions of time, presence and loss as it follows my Mother's last walk in her home town of Avoca, Victoria after the death of her second husband and sale of the family house.
Walking is integral to my Mothers life on many levels and helps untangle the internal noise and thought processes as mimicked by the ever present sound of the Pobblebonk Frogs.
