ALANA HUNT - EXHIBITION 25/02/22 - 9/05/22

ALL THE VIOLENCE WITHIN THIS

The Courthouse Gallery+Studio, together with The Junction Co. invite you to join us at the opening of Alana Hunt: All the violence within this.

Featuring work produced for and made during Australia’s leading survey exhibition of contemporary art, The National 2021. This moving body of work is a culmination of Hunt’s long-unfolding photographic series All the violence within this and In the national interest.

Hunt’s work examines the violence and vulnerability of contemporary Australia through leisure and development. She presents disturbing yet familiar scenes of Country violated, often in seemingly benign ways, and crafts intentional conversations that have transpired in response to these images. Her work is a compelling reminder to non-Indigenous audiences to reflect on the ways colonisation is not historic, but unfolding. Here. And now.

Alana Hunt lives and works on Miriwoong Country which runs across both sides of the WA/NT border, in the East Kimberley. Her discursive practice moves between art-marking, publishing, and intervention and is underpinned by a commitment to work in challenging yet sensitive ways within the public sphere and the social space between people.

This body of work has been supported by the Copyright Agency’s Cultural Fund (2019), a Regional Artist Fellowship through the State Government’s Regional Arts and Cultural Investment Program and Regional Arts WA (2020-21), and Carriageworks inaugural Writer in Residence program (2021).

In conjunction with the season launch of the Matt Dann Theatre and Radius 3.0 exhibition, this event marks the beginning of Hedland’s dynamic arts and cultural calendar for 2022.
