Undercurrent was developed throughout 2018 during The Koorie Heritage Trust Fostering Koorie Art and Culture Residency. I collaborated with the Dja Dja Wurrung community to research, develop and create a major series of large format landscape photographs responding to a massacre site on Dja Dja Wurrung Country. The solo exhibition Undercurrent was staged at the Koorie Heritage Trust from 8 March until 28 April, 2019 featuring 8 new works with a 30-metre wallpaper installation and recorded soundscape, and interviews with Dja Dja Wurrung community members Mick Bourke and Amos Atkinson.

"For the series Aurelian I investigated history, museological collections and the Victorian landscape to piece together an evolving continuum of erasure, recovery, loss and memory. Informed through spending extensive time researching the entomology collection at Museums Victoria, studying now extinct and endangered species of butterflies and moths. I then travelled to the sites of extinction and collected soil samples which she used to create painterly backgrounds or environments on which to photograph the butterfly specimens."
