I am a Yugambeh-Bundjalung & Kannakan woman, living on Wodi Wodi-Dharawal Country. As an emerging artist with a disability, learning and determination underpin my approaches and my Mentors are integral to the foundation of my practice.
My character, Sister GlitterNullius is conduit for provocation and investigation. She is the post-traumatic, personification and representation of the hypocrisy dilemma that is the Anthropocene. Ancient and trashy, an ironic hypocrite, she is a nun, imprisoned by her love-hate relationship with plastix, consumerism, capitalism, christianity and post-colonialism. Sister GlitterNullius’, DNA has been infected by micro-plastix and she’s morphing into a bird. Although she’s of Indigenous ancestry, we might hope she would at least, she’d become a native bird…No. She’s becoming a macaw… Can someone give her a lift or lend her a map?
There are enduring themes of identity, Indigeneity, entangled, complex relationships between humans and non-humans, failure and fragility in my work. These are contextualised within decolonisation frameworks, Indigenous cultural revitalisation, simultaneously responding to environmental crisis. Through performative-workshops, video story-telling and performances, my practice priorities include, social engagement projects that prioritise community capacity and collaborative solutions with challenging, complex issues.
