SPIRITLANDS

Cherie Johnson | Nicole Chaffey | Tara Standing

Spiritlands – three women explore disconnection and reconnect1on to land and spirit through photography and video.

Terra Nullius or “a land belonging to no-one” becomes more than a metaphor in the burnt landscapes reclaimed by Cherie Johnson through her series Not Forgotten. Nicole Chaffey uses old photographic technology to capture the Private Lawns of colonised Australia and its suburbs. Tara Standing constructs ephemeral landscapes as backdrop to the rite of passage of young Aboriginal women growing up in contemporary Australia in Red Ribbon Series 2 and her video piece Mermaids & Cicadas.
