This survey focuses on work created since Mandy Martin came to live in Mandurama in Central Western NSW.

The 20 works chosen for this exhibition reflect 20 years in the region, and address Martin’s deep unease about the landscape in which we live. Environmental issues relating to water security, the impact of the region’s coal-fired power stations and open cut mines are central concerns.

The exhibition includes two recent collaborative video projects with artist and curator Alexander Boynes, that continue these investigations and follow Russian film maker Sergei Eisenstein’s proposition that between nature and industry lies art.
