Dale Harding & Steve Kemp

In Conversation

14 February 2019

Brisbane-based artist Dale Harding (Bidjara, Garingbal, and Ghungalu) and Steve Kemp (Ghungalu), a traditional medicine specialist from Woorabinda in Central Queensland, discuss the interconnectedness of trees and plants in Central and South-East Queensland; and how the legacy of such knowledges resists current forces of cultural and spiritual dispossession.

Current Iterations is Dale Harding’s first survey exhibition, bringing together works focused on shared languages permeating landscape, bodies, and objects.
