Personal Histories: Benalla Art Gallery

Yhonnie Scarce

6 Jul - 8 Sep 2019

Personal Histories, a solo presentation of Yhonnie Scarce’s work, explores the modes of perceptions used as underlying weapons of colonial power to keep Aboriginal people submissive to the hierarchy of colonial rule. Through research into her family’s experiences, Scarce’s glass work engages with the wider issue of containment of Aboriginal people, including the forcible removal of these people from their land and consequent death.

Scarce will be speaking about her work on Monday 8 July, 10 AM (during NAIDOC week) at the gallery.
