TWO WAYS Begins

Today marks the start of the new series Two Ways \ A Dualistic System. Over the past two years, I’ve been living and working in Davenport Community just outside of my birthplace, the township of Port Augusta. This first-ever collaboration will see me working alongside Inkatja (Lavene McKenzie) who was born ten years earlier than me in the same hospital in Port Augusta. The series intent is to delve into our childhood markers and conceptually share our stories through location-based works.

It seems like everything i’ve been inadvertently doing has led me to this point. I’m not sure where this series will take me but i’m happy to get into it and see.

Being guided on country is critical to this series and to all production. Pictured: Uncle Ian Combie
