(excerpt from Posts in the Paddock)
One hundred and eleven years ago, relatives of My Darling Patricia’s Clare Britton were murdered by an Aboriginal Bushranger, Jimmy Governor, on a property in the Hunter Valley. Taking its name from the ruins of the house where Clare’s relatives died, Posts in the Paddock is a major new performance and installation. Combining sculpture, animation, puppetry, performance and oral histories, Posts in the Paddock is a collaboration between Indigenous and non-Indigenous artists – that explores this moment in history from multiple perspectives. You are invited to share this intimate and ultimately very personal work of reconciliation.
Artists: Bryony Anderson, Jenn Blake, Michelle Blakeney, Clare Britton, Nadeena Dixon, Aunty Rhonda Dixon Grovenor, Phil Downing, Fiona Foley, Sam James, Halcyon Macleod, LeRoy Parsons, Sam Routledge, Lily Shearer and Chris Twyman.
