A Country Big Enough to Disappear In
‘…Distant places give us refuge in territories where our own histories aren't so deeply entrenched and we can imagine other stories, other selves…'
A Country Big Enough to Disappear In is a long-term body of work engaging with an Australia beyond the metropolitan. The work claims no agenda and seeks no resolve in that sense. Rather, it is something that accompanies me as I keep learning to love this country, hoping to be loved back. It is a narrative of journey and memory-making, one that allows me to study a place and to look and to listen.
Coming from a story of movement through language and culture and continent, my eye is in-between. I consider this a space of privilege – close but ever so slightly removed, belonging to multiple worlds.
