BLACK CROW – AR exhibition

Daen Sansbury-Smith

3 July - 29 August 2021
King's Floor

Black Crow is a metaphor for the wise watchful eye of male Aboriginal role models and their key responsibilities within the community.

This AR exhibition expands on Narungga and Trawoolwaway artist Daen Sansbury-Smith’s representation of Narungga and Palawa stories, art and culture. It explores transference of inherited knowledge, stories and responsibility from a father to his young children. Through ochre, charcoal and acrylic on canvas, Sansbury-Smith maps Ancestral memory and connection to country, sharing stories of pre and post-contact Aboriginal history and culture; and animated elements by Isobel Knowles bring the works to life.

The animated AR elements are viewed on a smart device using the EyeJack app, downloadable via Apple App store or Google Play.
