Artist in Residence | 4 July - 18 August

The Golden State

‘The Golden State’ is reference to a slogan used during the 1980s on Western Australian licence plates. Martyn seeks to question how different moments in Australian history have been framed, focusing on how we are engaging with the natural landscape. The project explores the recent culling of sharks, the dinosaur footprints at Gantheaume Point in Broome and the nuclear testing at Montebello Islands by the British in the 1950s.
