Promiscuous Provenance explores our colonial past with direct reference to the works of the early colonial artists’ and their first encounters with the Australian landscape. Australian artist, Anna Glynn elaborates on John Hunter’s idea of “promiscuous intercourse” by creating her own alien creatures, hybrid manifestations of the original colonists’ art that sometimes includes the colonists themselves.

Atlas of the Human Heart
Atlas Of The Human Heart explores our journey through conception, identity, love, displacement and diaspora to new forms of cross-cultural hybridity, drawing inspiration from biology, the garden and family history.
It sets human settlement and domesticity against the larger picture of nature’s evolution and survival.
