Soft soil between our toes and jagged rocks underfoot. Are they fossil fuel deposits ripe for exploitation or sacred Dreaming sites?
Rachel O’Reilly is an artist-poet, critic, independent curator and researcher whose work explores relationships between art and situated cultural practice, media philosophy and feminist political economy. In conjunction with 'Material Place: Reconsidering Australian Landscapes', this solo presentation focuses on O’Reilly’s ongoing project 'The Gas Imaginary' that uses poetry, drawing, film and public lectures to address the install of unconventional gas (fracking) investments in settler colonial space.
