Stories & Structures – New Connections explores images that pass on knowledge and shape our understanding of the world. Rich visual parallels between the representations seen in many Indigenous artworks and the microscopic structures hidden in the natural world, reveal unexpected and intriguing similarities.
The artists explored and Micrographs taken at Microscopy Australia’s facility and chose one that resonated with them. They then created an accompanying artwork. The artists come from diverse traditions and express their stories through a wide range of artistic styles and media.
This delivers a new vision of our country and its stories. We hope that this exhibition will open new conversations and provide opportunities to make new and lasting connections.
