While in Hill End, Bathurst-based artist Heather Dunn plans to explore the dialogue between the landscape, history and social archaeology of Hill End with a particular focus on land acquisition and the assumption of ‘terra nullius’. Drawing on a range of techniques using textiles, printmaking and drawing, Dunn will create a series of weavings, prints and collages which will intertwine the topographical lines of the landscape with cartographical lines delineating land holdings and mining leases. As well as being a direct reference for these works, the landscape of Hill End will provide Dunn with plant pigments for dyeing; bringing the colours, tones and textures of Hill End directly to her works.
