Foreign Matters


An installation of found, ready-made, and constructed objects examining colonial myth-making surrounding the story of Eliza Fraser. In 1836 Fraser survived shipwreck off the coast of Queensland, and was taken in and cared for by the Badtjala, Traditional Owners of K'gari (Fraser Island). The work is indebted to the discussion and research contained in Larissa Behrendt's "Finding Eliza: Power and Colonial Storytelling" 2016, University of Qld Press.
