Jane Giblin: I shed my skin

Over 100 years and across five generations of one bloodline; Jane Giblin navigates ancestral layers in her exploration of family history and the cultural and working lives of the inhabitants of Flinders Island, Tasmania. ‘I shed my skin’ presents works on paper, lithographs and black and white photography demonstrating the changing relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous families; their farming, fishing and mutton birding lives, and the difficulties associated with possession and dispossession, set traditions and modes of survival influenced by a geographically isolated environment.
