Strata: tracing the past

 

Veiled by grass and decayed through time, the remnants of the Kerry Lodge convict site are silent reminders of history held in the earth. The artists in this project worked alongside a team of archaeologists to gradually remove the layers of earth, exposing again the stone walls, the debris of daily life and the boundless possibility of stories reimagined.

The site is returned to rest now, blanketed once more in soil, but it is kept alive by the responses of the artists to their experiences of the dig. Ephemeral and performance works form a collaborative installation that calls long-held history to the present and allows the earth to speak.

A flash of light, a line of dust, a scatter of fragments – all words and punctuation in a story retold.

 

Curator: Karen Hall
Artists: Robert Boldkald, Caroline Heine, Wendy McGrath, Graeme Miles, Julie Montgarrett, Lydia Nicholson, Amelia Rowe, Mary Peacock, Patrick Sutczak and Helene Weeding
