Location:Crows Nest Regional Art Gallery, Cnr New England Highway & William Street, Crows Nest, QLD 4355 Australia
 

She Feels, She Sees, She Makes is a trans-disciplinary, collective response between three Indigenous and three non-Indigenous women, who find themselves coming together for the first time through the commonality of the she aspect of humanity - the feminine. Together, they explore different cultural histories, and how this translates to meaningful relationships to country in Australia.

Speaking through the mediums of painting, printmaking, sculpture, and photography, this exhibition will include existing and new works that harness the power of cross-cultural dialogue to investigate the nurturing and regenerative powers of the feminine aspect of humanity. This comes as a direct response to current hierarchical systems of power belonging to the patriarch that go back to British invasion and colonisation. Here, ideas relating to myth, race, gender, empowerment, ancestry, scarification of country, spirituality, fertility, history, colonialism, ecology, identity, as well as sense of place and belonging through storytelling, are explored through a multitude of motifs, iconography, metaphors and allegories.
