Meryl McMaster and James Tylor
Aski, Earth, Terra, Yarta
A complex dialogue between two First Nation artists on their relationship to the land. James Tylor (Possum) explores Australian cultural representations through his Nunga (Kaurna), Māori (Te Arawa) and European ancestry. In her performance-based photography, Canadian artist Meryl McMaster eludes to the contradictions and conflicts of Plains Cree, British, Scottish and Dutch heritage.
Tylor and McMaster bring together their disparate histories and geographies to find commonalities in the activation of personal and collective identity.
