Reorganising Principles
Beau Allen
27th May - 6th June

This exhibition reconsiders the visibility of colonial settler women within historical narratives. Referencing colonial images and objects of jewellery, this experimental work will extend on existing knowledge of the era. By using the genre of jewellery to navigate the archives, connections can be created between diverse artifactual evidence concerned with the presence of women in Australian historical narratives. This process aims to visualise idiosyncrasies of the experiences of women through the use of new objects forms and photographic mosaics.
