Minyambul yiri yimbang (because it is a sacred thing)

7 dec. 2018 — 2 feb. 2019

A contemporary artist, and member of the Wiradjuri nation, Central West NSW, Foreshew works across a range of mediums, from photomedia, design, sculpture, film and video. Her practice encompasses multi-layered themes that are informed through a deep connection to Country, its environment and geological sites of significance. All are hallmarks of her work.

Continuing a profound connection to her Country and exploration of the meaning of land, space, and identity are integral. Accessing her personal connection to memory and sophisticated cultural practices, Foreshew investigates personal relationships to kin and the material knowledge required to revive the body, using contemporary art forms underpinned by social, ceremonial, and sacred knowledge.

Foreshew engages with the complex usage of land and has extended her exploration internationally, recently visiting North Africa, looking at the role that excavated material has traditionally played in culture, referencing the institutional

‘artefact’ and forming comparisons to ceremonial or everyday uses of earth materials.
