27 June – 22 July 2018
Opening Friday 29 June 5.30pm
The Crossings comprises a suite of digital print-based historical and contemporary photographs of women, boats and artefacts associated with the sea, rivers and waterways.
Watercolours are layered with detailed drawings and digital manipulation techniques.
People and places seem to fade in and out of view, in an attempt to suggest the experience of sifting through recorded history.
This exhibition is an extension and further exploration of a project carried out in 2017, where Ann Morrison responded to the absence of female voices in Tasmanian maritime history, through exploring the collection of the Bass Strait Maritime Centre.
