Artist Joel Spring on untitled (winhangarra)

The sculptures in Ceremony are the material products of a process that I have been engaging with and researching since I’ve spent time down on Yuin Country. They’re the product of a process that looks like architecture but isn’t performing any task, yet is the way that I feel that culture puts up what seems like a new language of articulating loss and remembrance, and problems that are the product of 250 years of settler occupation in this country. For me, these objects were all moments for material articulations to happen that would speak to this wider strategy, which is about how we engage a community in actively caring with Country and it having material outcomes that speak to these ideas.
