Barbara Campbell – Ex Avibus

5 Mar 2022 - 19 Jun 2022

Multi-disciplinary artist Barbara Campbell takes inspiration from the journey of shorebirds that migrate every year from one end of the globe and back along ancient flyways in ex avibus.

With a keen environmental focus, Campbell works in video, large-scale drawings, watercolours, and screen prints, to trace the journey from Arctic breeding grounds, to resting sites in South-East Asia, through to non-breeding grounds in Australia and New Zealand including Melbourne Water’s Western Treatment Farm at nearby Werribee.
