Where Two Oceans Meet: Selected Histories of Flinders Bay
– with Alistair Kennedy, Georgia Jean Lewis, Nelson Mondlane, Ariel Tresham and Amelia Tuttleby
“In Flinders Bay, the Pelican Man feeds the pelicans. He uses an ironing board as a table and throws the left over bits and pieces from his recent catch to the birds; 19 Davies Road has been on the market for many years. In 2011 it was featured in the movie ‘Drift’ but is yet to be sold; a man asks for signatures requesting stairs to be built as a memorial to two longstanding residents, the tourists ask for barbeques.”
Where Two Oceans Meet: Selected Histories of Flinders Bay builds from narratives and memories of Flinders Bay, a small holiday settlement in the southwest of Australia. Borrowing from models of theatre and television in its construction, this exhibition is a multi-part installation that activates and reinterprets local histories.
