Impressions from the Reserve

Olivia Hickey

Sunday 15 November, 2020 – Sunday 14 March, 2021

This exquisite exhibition of jewellery, photography and monoprint is Olivia’s response to the diversity of place and echoes the stories written in the rocks and the ancient plants.

Olivia has spent the last three years exploring, roaming, romping and wandering through the Reserve, ( Cradle Mountain – Lake St Clair and Walls of Jerusalem National park ). Whilst travelling on foot and often sleeping in a tent she has collected impressions leaving the land mostly undisturbed and investigated new ways of responding to and working in place.

Capturing the intimate details of land as it is now she creates permanent records of impermanent places. Talismans that connect people to the ephemeral elements of place that when placed on the landscape of the body become tangible reminders of the place from which they originally came.
