In Situ, Clementine Belle McIntosh and Leilani Knight, Gilgandra Art Gallery at the Cooee Heritage Centre, 4th March – 16th April 2023.
In Situ is an exhibition made-with the community, culture and environment of Gilgandra NSW – the waterhole meeting place of the Wiradjuri, Wailwan and Kamilaroi peoples. Emerging artists Clementine Belle McIntosh and Leilani Knight collaborate to produce a body of work representing the palimpsest of Aboriginal knowledge systems, local industries and material cycles forming their hometown. Repurposed objects such as wool packs, street signs, old painters drop sheets and mechanical parts are used as mark-making devices to transcribe the artist’s lived rural experiences in metaphors and stories of country.
We thank Gilgandra Shire Council for their financial support in the making of this body of work.
