3SPACE: 21st Century Indigenous Explorers

A National Aboriginal Cultural Institute – Tandanya Exhibition

Texts: Mark Blackman, David Pearce, Darryl Pfitzner Milika

Fiona Macdonald addresses art history and the museum; popular culture and the vernacular. The interrogation of the art world and its objects, the specimens of the museum, and the monuments of history are displayed in a way that undermines 'second nature' or common sense. The title of the exhibition Second Nature refers to the idea of the spectacle as nature, not in the sense of a copy but as another nature-a parallel nature.
