Memorial for Forgotten Plants - Louise Flaherty Adelaide CBD

Memorial for Forgotten Plants

Continuing the project Memorial for Forgotten Plants, with a focus on the  Port Noarlunga area,  Flaherty will undertake research with the City of Onkaparinga’s Sustainability Team (through the Climate is Change initiative) to identify the original species of local native flora and their vanishing natural environments.

The project will develop “memorials” depicted in the form of ink drawings, collected plant stories and paper installations honouring the tenuous place held by local vegetation due to the impact of introduced species.

Exploration into native plant revegetation, especially in urban backyards, may uncover stories of hope for the future.  A series of workshops will accompany the residency.

Exhibition dates: 22 June – 27 July 2019

Walk Draw Stitch Write

Repetition, occurring in the landscape of the Onkaparinga River, echoes in the fall of footsteps, the scratch of the pen on paper, and the movement of a needle through cloth.

By mapping the walking and making body, utilising written word, drawing and techniques of textile mark-making, Darlaston will continue her ongoing interest in the movements a working artist makes.

Exhibition dates: 22 June – 27 July 2019
