On Monday, 13.02.2023 Maree Clarke’s multimedia installation, Barerarerungar, will be unveiled at 101 Collins St, Melbourne as their latest commissioned artwork.
Her installation, featuring photography and video, explore the customary ceremonies and rituals of her Ancestors.
“My work has a quality of timelessness, using new technologies to tell stories of past, present, and future. I would like people entering and exiting this part of the building to not just think about what they are doing and where they are going but what has been before and where they could go. Barerarerungar is representative of the five clans of the Kulin Nation. Viewed together, they visually transport visitors and passers-by to another place and time and create space to reflect on the thriving arts and culture by First Nations artists in the Southeast, long before Melbourne came to be.”
