International exhibitions 2020

Van Diemensland – opening December 2020 at KEG expo, Schijndel, the Netherlands (with Dutch artists Marielle van den Bergh and Mels Dees).

This exhibition responds to the historical links between Tasmania and the Netherlands. Abel Tasman’s ‘Journal of the Voyage to the Unknown Southland in the Year 1642’ provided valuable background information for the work.
