Back Country

India Flint

India Flint’s practice melds the visual and written poetics of place and memory. She is renowned for her commitment to ecologically sustainable contact print processes that honour Australian indigenous plants. She is also a gatherer of found objects – stone, windfall biological material, minerals, and bones, as well as the discarded artefacts and hard detritus of human inhabitation.

Walking drawing, assemblage, mending, stitch and text provide a means of mapping country, recoding and recording her responses to landscape. back country is an evolving body of work that grew and expanded over eighteen months travelling the red heart of the big island north of Tasmania.

 

Presented by Clarence City Council
