Reclaiming the Bush

Exhibition and Shows

15 Dec 2021 to 23 Jan 2022 Once Only Event

An exhibition that brings the eye of the viewer into the intimate space of wildflowers, usually seen only when on the forest ground. Artist Stephanie Jakovac invites the viewer to get close and observe the minute details of beautiful native flora found in the Australian bush.

The exhibition offers the viewers a context for understanding and appreciating native flora and becoming aware in particular of the threat of bushfire and its consequences to native flora and the environment. Bushfires can be destructive and threatening to life and property but also regenerative. They are a natural feature of our ecosystem. Bushfires include the processes of destruction and conservation.

Artists statement: ‘I wish to convey the sensory experience of the native bush flowers during the fires and the human involvement trying to contain the destructive side of a major bushfire as well as the regeneration and freshness of the native flora, which is often not seen by people with busy lives.’

Open daily from 9.30 am to 4.30 pm in the Visitor Centre Gallery.
