'Looking Glass: Judy Watson and Yhonnie Scarce' is both a love song and a lament for Country; a fantastical alchemy of the elemental forces of earth, water, fire and air.
Judy Watson’s ochres, charcoal and pigments, pooled and washed upon flayed canvases, have a natural affinity and synergy with Yhonnie Scarce’s glass works with their fusion of fire, earth and air. Together, Watson and Scarce express the inseparable ‘one-ess’ of Aboriginal people with Country, a familial relationship established for millennia.
Curated by Hetti Perkins, this exhibition exposes Australia’s secret and dirty war—a battle fought on many fronts from colonial massacres to Stolen Generations, from the Maralinga bomb tests to the climate emergency. In their works, the artists poignantly remind us how the pursuit of the Great Australian Dream is not what it seems. It is, in reality, a nightmare, a shimmering mirage, a candle in the coming storm.
Organised by Ikon and TarraWarra Museum of Art with curator Hetti Perkins.
