For some, the connection to nature is almost tangible, it influences who they are, how they connect to others and how they connect to themselves. Mali marrng Mallee sky by Gail Harradine and Belinda Eckermann gives form to the invisible and unseen personal, familial, community narrative of connection to landscape. The artists’ first time collaboration merges digital photography, entomological research, electron microscopic imaging and First Nations cultural practices, to explore a shared knowledge and connection to the landscape around Lake Albacutya –Ngalukgutya in Victoria Mallee region. Their alliance manifests in new cultural ways of thinking to seek a greater understanding of the human experience of connection to Country. A Horsham Regional Art Gallery exhibition. Curated by Alison Eggleton. The development of this artwork is supported by the Australian Government’s Regional Arts Fund which is provided through Regional Arts Australia, administered by Regional Arts Victoria.
