After months of intense work, Michelle Walker and her creative collaborator, Jude White have finished their work for the Ash, Mud & Tears exhibition. In this episode, Jude joins Michelle and Jennifer to talk about the making of the work, the ideas behind the show and some learnings from how it all came together.
In Ash, Mud & Tears, Michelle Walker & Jude White present an exhibition of artworks capturing the energies and turmoil in the aftermath of fires and floods in the Northern Rivers. Images of burnt trees, mud-stained houses and impacted landscapes are fragmented, scaled and remixed, depicting a time of great upheaval. Each artwork considers house our relationship to the landscape, and a sense of place and home can emerge during this time of recovery.
