Island Shrine

Keith Deverell with Fiona Hamilton in partnership with Aunty Netty Shaw and Uncle Rob Anders.


Walk across rings of ochre, burnt spears, charcoal and maireener shells, and take a seat.

This brooding video and sound installation is inspired by Tarenorerer (also known as Walyer, c. 1800–1831), a Tasmanian Aboriginal warrior woman and tyrelore (island wife) who fought white colonists in our island’s genocidal Black War.

+ Friday 15–Sunday 24 June, 3–8pm, Carnegie Gallery, Maritime Museum of Tasmania.

Commissioned by Dark Mofo, assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council.

With special thanks to Bryan Denny, Ocean Blue Diving, Tasmanian Indigenous Fisherman.
