Unnatural History : The Tower Hill Project travels to Lismore Regional Gallery


  • Lismore Regional Gallery 11 Rural Street Lismore, NSW, 2480 Australia (map)

Unnatural History: The Tower Hill Project commemorates over 160 years since Australian artist Eugene von Guérard painted Tower Hill VIC (1855). In this exhibition Hobie Porter interrogates the environmental impacts that colonial settlement has had on this special place. Guided by von Guérard’s painting, a major revegetation program began in the 1960s to restore the flora and fauna native to the region. Porter’s depiction of Tower Hill celebrates this renewed state, while also alluding to the complexities of the restoration program.
