9 DEC – 28 APR
Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre 1 Powerhouse Road Casula NSW 2170
Memories of Water (Badu) reveals glimpses of life from pre and post colonisation in the Liverpool/Casula region where the Georges River flows. The exhibition provides a unique insight into the often-overlooked Cabragal Dharug connection to badu (water) and Ngurra (country).
The Dharug people are intrinsically linked to the site and the surrounding land where the Casula Powerhouse stands. Their stories are brought together in this visually rich exhibition, featuring Tobin’s iridescent glass works that capture and shimmer in the light, reflecting on the past and emphasising the fragile nature of the river in contemporary times.
Leanne Tobin is a proud descendent of the Buruberong and Wumali clans of the Dharug nation. She is highly respected and is increasingly acknowledged as a leading contemporary arts figure at a national level. Memories of Water (Badu) is Tobin’s first solo exhibition at Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre.
This exhibition is a free event. No registration is required.
