Promiscuous Provenance, encourages a re-examination of our relationship with our colonial past. Artist Anna Glynn is drawn to the work of the early colonial artists, whose depictions of Australian flora and fauna did not represent the landscape as it really was but instead drew on European forms and animals. This is both beguiling and symbolic; is our identity as Australians built on a strange hybrid history, a ‘Promiscuous Provenance’? Using a range of different media, Anna Glynn populates her own antipodean world with strange hybrid manifestations to invoke curiosity and wonder.

Promiscuous Provenance is a travelling exhibition from Shoalhaven Regional Gallery, presented by Whitlam Institute.
