Haefligers Cottage

Clare Martin is a Canberra based installation artist with a Masters in Visual Arts from Australian National University. References to heritage and the institution of the Museum have been a continuing theme in her work, particularly the relationship between heritage architecture, artefacts and memory. Clare plans to use the historic gardens of Hill End as a transition zone between the built environment and the landscape with the erection of small, ephemeral in historic buildings and their grounds. This work will be photographed and presented as a "photo album" possibly incorporating recollections and stories from the local community. In 2002 Clare was awarded a grant by Asialink for a Residency at the Vietnam Museum of Ethnology.
