Verity Nunan :: Where are we supposed to go?
6 Mar - 18 Apr 2021
Gallery 5

Tuesday Morning on July 21, The Byron Shire Council, the Police, National Parks and Crown Lands removed illegal campers from the Brunswick Heads Nature Reserve, on Bundjalung Country, due to complaints of intimidation and anti-social behaviour. There is a polarising social construct that exists in Brunswick Heads, dividing those who live in public space and those who complain about people living in public space.

This show is about putting a face to those members of the community that are continuously moved on and made to feel as though they do not belong. I have spent many years with these inhabitants digesting the question “Where are we supposed to go?” I think before we answer this, at a base level we need to address concerning gap within the community as our sense of belonging is so innately tied with other people’s perception of us.   

In the spirit of reconciliation I would like to acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of country throughout Australia and their connections to land, sea and community. I pay my respects to the Arakwal People of Bundjalung Country in which this work was carried out. I would also like say thank you to all the participants who trusted me to tell their story.
