Dr Peta Clancy

Dr Peta Clancy is a descendent of the Bangerang people from south-eastern Australia. Through her photographic work Dr Clancy explores hidden histories of colonisation, events which threatened the survival of her ancestors. Through processes of manually manipulating photographic prints and rephotographing these, through processes that layer time, the past and the present, Dr Clancy aims to re-construct and bring to light these hidden histories in a contemporary setting. Through these photographs Dr Clancy seeks to challenge the viewer to focus on what may have been missed, denied or hidden. Dr Clancy has been awarded the 2018 Fostering Koorie Art and Culture and the Koorie Heritage Trust Residency Grant funded by the Indigenous Languages and Arts Program.

Dr Clancy has a PhD from Monash University; Master of Arts (Media Arts), RMIT University; Bachelor of Fine Arts Honours, University of Tasmania; Bachelor of Fine Arts, RMIT University. Dr Clancy is the Associate Dean, Indigenous Senior Lecturer, Fine Art at Monash.

Kent Morris

Kent Morris is a Barkindji man living on Yaluk-ut Weelam Country in Melbourne. Central themes in Morris’ art practice are the connections between contemporary Indigenous experience and contemporary cultural practices and their continuation and evolution. By reconstructing the built environment through a First Nations lens, Morris reveals the continuing presence and patterns of Aboriginal history, culture and knowledge in the contemporary Australian landscape, despite ongoing colonial interventions in the physical and political environments.

Morris graduated from the Victorian College of the Arts and is an alumnus of the National Gallery of Australia’s Wesfarmers Indigenous Leadership Program. Morris has work in many collections including Artbank, National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne VIC Parliament House Art Collection, Canberra ACT University of Technology Sydney (UTS), Hamilton Gallery VIC, Horsham Regional Art Gallery, Koorie Heritage Trust, City of St. Kilda, The Wesfarmers Collection Australian Unity.
