Sally Kidall creates site-specific installations that explore her ongoing fascination with transition and ephemerality. Using Hill End’s uniquely historic past as a gold mining town that has experienced a hugely fluctuating population and cultural diversity, Kidall will continue her current research project: "There’s no place like home continues…" It is an ongoing investigation into notions of displacement narratives and nomadism that is driven by Kidall’s need to challenge the predictability of expectations & ‘cultural homogeneity.’
