Yhonnie Scarce: What They Wanted


September 11 – December 30, 2012

Yhonnie Scarce (Kokatha and Nukunu) works with blown glass and other media, drawing on her personal family history to investigate themes of “containment” of Aboriginal people as a legacy of colonization. Many of her works take the shape of Australian fruits and vegetables (such as bush bananas, bush plums and long yams) to metaphorically represent Aboriginal people, culture and traditions. She is represented by Dianne Tanzer Gallery in Melbourne.
