Tracey Moffatt & Hayley Millar-Baker: The Truth of What Occurred Remains

‘The Truth of What Occurred Remains’ brings together two major bodies of work that reflect on the transgenerational trauma of colonisation experienced by Indigenous people. Tracey Moffatt’s Up in the Sky (1997) touches on race, violence and poverty; the deleterious ramifications of the Stolen Generation whose wounds never healed. Hayley Millar-Baker’s A Series of Unwarranted Events (2018) depicts the violent truths behind the European occupation of southwestern Victoria, land of the Gunditjmara people. By layering, cutting and repositioning imagery complexities of Aboriginality are revealed.
