Losing Ground

Gallery Installation and Temporary Installation
Losing Ground by Sue Kneebone conveyed a message of ecological degradation due to unsustainable agricultural practices in Australia. The salt floor, mirrors and overlay of film and sound were a reminder of what is being displaced through environmental decay. The sound and images included river water, wheat blowing in the wind from the Wimmera region and morning chorus of birds from the Mallee. A bricolage of antiquated fragments embedded in the salt floor recalled evidence from the darkness of the colonial past and its ongoing legacy.
