About the exhibition

This project, which began with an overseas journey to Ireland, Scotland and England in 2015, is based on the story of artist Lyne Marshall's ancestors emigrating to Australia in the 1800s. Life in Australia today is due to the many risks and losses of cultural history our ancestors faced and the effects of human movement as witnessed today in the psyche of all past and present inhabitants of this land.

The Overseas Component
To connect with her ancestral lands and using the concept of geocaching, ten individual Art Pods, each containing seven little Lyne Marshall art images were placed in the overseas habitats that were left behind so long ago. The GPS positions were published, to allow the pods to be located by the local people using mobile phones. The art pods were to be hopefully placed back after one artwork was kept as a gift. Interesting outcomes has seen one Art Pod already relocated to a World War One Cemetery in France.

The Artworks
As the artworks for this exhibition evolved they developed into three distinctive parts. The first consists of digitally mastered imagery on metal [aluminum] representing the migration, with the second section as wood and resin sculptures [lighting the way] and containing found metal and organic objects from abandoned towns in Australia. The last part of this exhibition finishes with acrylic paintings which convey the spirituality and beauty of the Australian landscape.

Interactive Component
The Art Pod experience is offered as an interactive aspect for each exhibiting gallery allowing for local involvement. This participation, along with the art, photographs, video, book on the project and catalogue will give the viewers a cohesive experience. The video will explain how the project evolved and the meaning behind the artworks. This exhibition is suitable for all ages especially school age children.
