Working with the St Andrews, Victoria community, Dec 2017 - March 2018
Anonymous Sojourners in the Australian Bush is a socially engaged public art project with the St Andrews community of Melbourne and Nillumbik Shire as part of their Living in the Landscape Public Arts Incubator. The project looks back in time, investigating the unknown history of anonymous Chinese miners from the 1850s. The project focuses on how contemporary art can reimagine and reconnect with a forgotten migrant community history and is developed in collaboration with the St Andrews Men's Shed. The project has now been decommissioned. Two of the lanterns remain inside at the Wadambuk Community Centre and four will be become part of the St Andrews Primary School community.
