Katherine Hattam: The history pictures

30 Mar 2019 - 19 May 2019

Katherine Hattam provides a feminist reading of the well-known colonial story of escaped convict William Buckley. Through the lens of Hattam’s contemporary domestic life, this new body of work explores the elusive life of Buckley, who lived for 32 years along Victoria’s coastline with the Wathaurong tribe before choosing to re-engage with white society.  

The history pictures will also include other series of work that re-envisage and re-write the male-dominant stories, myths and beliefs that have had an impact on Hattam’s journey as a female artist.
