Danie Mellor’s jujaba: [a thought space] at Artspace Sydney

25 Feb 2021

Danie Mellor’s jujaba: [a thought space] is on view in the Ideas Platform at Artspace Sydney from 11 February to 7 March 2021.

In jujaba: [a thought space], works are loosely sequenced to trace a pictorial storyline that suggest a progression through time. This narrative is initiated through images of the colonial takers and their arrival in northern Queensland, culminating in a moment of transubstantiation hinted at through objects such as the jawbone and shell-encrusted skull.
