LOVE: THE WORK OF CLAIRE MORGAN


When I recently visited the Museum of Old and New Art in Tasmania, my favourite artwork was Tracing Time created by Claire Morgan. I stood still - transfixed by the beauty and stillness of this piece. A moment captured in time that was so moving and compelling to me. The image of this piece often pops back into my mind and usually when I have literally stopped and given myself space to think.

It is well known that MONA explores life and death with a confronting and arguably 'shock-jock' approach. And yet, of all the work I experienced (some i really liked and some I was quite ambivalent about) this piece stood out and really spoke to me. I left thinking about it - in the context of all the artwork and the many juxtapositions presented, and was truly stirred by what is potentially the quietest artwork in the collection. This is interesting to me. That quite statements can speak such volumes and resonate so strongly at a time when there is so much noise out there in the art and wider world.

I respectfully acknowledge the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation, the traditional custodians of the land on which I create and exhibit art. I pay my respects to Elders past and present, as well as to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in the wider Melbourne community and beyond. Indigenous sovereignty has never been ceded. I acknowledge that I work and live on country on which Members and Elders of The Wurundjeri people and their forebears have been custodians for many centuries and on which Aboriginal People have performed age-old ceremonies of celebration, initiation and renewal. I acknowledge their living culture and their unique role in the life of this region.
