The Lower Lands

Holly Story

5 October to 10 November 2013

Holly Story's The Lower Lands marked the sixth year of Heathcote Museum & Gallery's Tilt program.

The Lower Lands describe both a physical and a psychical space. It is the name given to the area of remnant bushland below the buildings that historically comprised the Heathcote Mental Reception Home, and it is also a potent image for that part of our selves where out-of-sight yet powerful impulses move and shape outward behaviour.

These two aspects characterise Holly Story's response to Point Heathcote - a place where mind and land intersect in revealing ways.
