Robert Andrew and Katie Breckon

Robert Andrew and Katie Breckon have devoted their practices to the land and its histories, exploring Country, belonging, and the impact of Australian colonisation on individuals and communities.

Andrew’s kinetic installation is programmed to stratify and release soil to form a ‘landscape’, inviting contemplation of the creative and destructive cycles imposed on the land. While Breckon’s monoprint studies review the Aboriginal stone tool collection of West Kimberley bushman Vic Cox, exploring the intersection between place, time, image and memory.
