Visit the STILL: National Still Life Award 2023 exhibition at Yarrila Arts and Museum (YAM) on Saturday 2nd December at 10.30am to meet this year’s STILL Winner Alana Hunt. Alana will be joining us to discuss her award-winning work “…and fled swiftly (i and ii) 2022” as well as her broader interdisciplinary arts practice.
During this artist talk, Alana will discuss her most recent body of work and take you on a journey to explore the development, themes and significance of her practice in contributing to social commentary on the impacts of colonisation in Australia.
Born 1984, Gadigal Country, Sydney. Lives and works on Miriwoong Country, East Kimberley, Western Australia.
Alana Hunt is non-indigenous artist and writer. Currently based on Gadigal Country in Sydney, over the last twelve years she has lived on Miriwoong and Gija Countries in the North-West of Australia.
Her work examines the violence that results from the fragility of nations and the aspirations and failures of colonial dreams, both within the area she lives and in the context of her longstanding engagement with South Asia.
Her distributed art practice moves between publishing, exhibition making and public intervention. She communicates with a broad network of collaborators and peers in the development of her interdisciplinary works and regularly contributes to social commentary through podcasts, discussions and publishing.
