Haefligers Cottage

Emma White’s interest in the concept of genus loci, the spirit of place, will guide her exploration of Hill End’s past and present. Familiar with the area from childhood visits with her gold rush obsessed father, Emma plans to use her residency to generate photographs, video and sound recordings that will form the basis for exhibitions in Sydney and Melbourne in late 2009. An Honors graduate in Media Art from Sydney College of Fine Arts in 2002, White completed her Master of Visual Arts in 2005 and in the same year was the inaugural recipient of the Fauvette Loriero Memorial Artist’s Scholarship.
