Exhibition: From 14 October to 13 November 2020, UNSW Main Library Level 5
A digital version Worlding With Oysters is available as an Online Exhibition.
In this exhibition, presented in the Main Library Exhibition Space and online, Dr Sarah Jane Moore asks us to listen to the Bandangi - the Sydney Rock Oyster. The poetics, songs and artworks presented are a result of Sarah Jane observing and interpreting the research of Dr Laura Parker, Indigenous Scientia Fellow in the School of Biological, Earth and Environmental Sciences, who aims to 'future-proof' natural oyster populations through building resilience to ocean warming and acidification. This dialogue between art and science opens up a space to embrace Indigenous knowledge, understandings and wisdoms, where the revitalisation of cultural practices is a call to arms to care for Sea Country.
