Beastly Careless

Donna Ritchie explores the processes of migration, displacement and discovery entwined with the search for belonging and home.


Through her monster creations, Donna Ritchie forms a partly autobiographical depiction of movement through various locations familiar to Tasmanians, and some less so. We trace the journey of these allegorical monsters and their eternal search for the “right spot” – a place of belonging. From South Hobart, all the way to Cradle Mountain, the search and engagement with various locations are explored.

Using a mixture of models, large scale photography, and mixed media, we are given a glimpse into the imaginary journeys of the monster, Martha and her family, exploring migration, movement, disruption and location, themes that are universal to us all.
