Intrinsic seeks to explore ideas of connection to place, land and home. The artists exhibiting are from various cultural backgrounds including (but not limited to) Australian Aboriginal and new migrant heritage. Connections as well as differences are created and comparatively curated through a collection of artists’ works in regards to feelings of belonging and place, with a focus on artistic process and the importance of expressing and conversing through this important dialogue.

Connection to place is a deeply personal relationship for all individuals. Some feel that they belong to another place or land that they do not live in, and some feel that the place or land they live in is not truly theirs. Some who live in the place or land in which they belong, have had it stolen from them. Many variables exist within connection to land and the way it is perceived by each individual.

This exhibition considers the time-spanning, cultural significance of place, across generations and into the Dreaming through the eyes of two senior Anangu students from Amata Anangu School in South Australia’s Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (APY) Lands. Photographic works selected for this exhibition, portray snippets of the memories, cultural practices and traditions associated with the specific locations visited, that are still pertinent in how these young Anangu women experience and connect with the land and their cultural heritage today. Photographic works creatively explore their contemporary cultural connection to country and sense of place through the locations of the Seven Sisters Dreaming.

Local emerging artists in this exhibition provide a creative exploration into navigating the spaces around them, attempting to highlight the multiple ways they connect with the South Australian landscape. Stemming from various cultural backgrounds, the artists unpack discussions of finding a sense of home, living on Kaurna land and the ways that particular spaces and locations can affect both them and their process of making. Contrasts are drawn between identities of Aboriginal, post-colonial, new migrant and refugee heritages, forming direct interactions between their unique experiences of existing with, or alongside, the South Australian landscape.
The Emerging Curator program is delivered in partnership with the City of Adelaide.
