witness/ tree is the first iteration of a site-responsive body of work by writer and artist Jennifer Eadie together with dance practitioner and Barkandji woman Adrianne Semmens that interrogates relationship to place.

The artists consider what it means to authentically bear witness to a recently fallen blue gum whose age pre-dates invasion. In doing so, their work seeks to simultaneously honour, disrupt and (re)connect with the histories and stories of Tuthangga, Kaurna Country (Park 17, Adelaide).

This exhibition was developed during a Nexus Studio Residency program supported by the City of Adelaide. As part of this residency, the artists were generously guided by the consultation and ceremony of Senior Kaurna Man, Uncle Mickey Kumatpi O’Brien and the mentorship of Narungga poet, artist and researcher, Natalie Harkin.

Nexus Art Gallery is open 1–4pm on Friday, 26 January for the final day of witness/ tree.
