Ruth Stone’s current practice explores the history of settlement in the Bathurst and Orange region, and the Hill End residency is a perfect environment to research and develop a new body of work. During her residency, Stone will further explore the landscape, the layers of history and the marks of time associated with Hill End in an effort to understand the myth and phenomenology of the history of settlement in this ghostly village.
