Title of work

Doubting Lakes Edge

Synopsis

The parameters of the work oscillate between two spaces. A campsite, and an open space. The camping ground represents a place of settlement and the open space operates as a foreground for events. Both sites play with the notion of habitation, isolation and contamination. The narrative is a contemporary reflection in both idiom and mode of the time spent by the women passengers' aboard the Princess Royal and their first encounter with settlement in Tasmania in 1832.
