Terra infirma (2)

Tace Kelly

Side Gallery
10 Jan 2014–1 Feb 2014
Opening 12.00am 1 Jan 1970

‘…the sea is not a space free of territorial contestation, but that is being reclaimed as a site of alternative practices, submerged histories and counternational imaginaries.’

Made as a response to the oversaturation of the media coverage of Asylum seekers coming to Australia by boat, Terra Infirma (2) is a video and audio installation which deals with the struggle between a site of contention; the sea, and a site of familiarity; the home. Terra Infirma (2) reconciles these two sites that are both weighted with histories, imaginings and fictions. The work was recently presented at MADA NOW 2013.

Tace Kelly uses photography, performance, video and installation to respond to the language and representation of events in Australian history and politics. Tace recently completed her undergraduate degree in Fine Art (Sculpture) at Monash University.
