A Sorrowful Act: The Wreck of the Zeewijk

 

A Sorrowful Act: The Wreck of the Zeewijk derives from a broader investigation within artist Drew Pettifer’s work to unearth hidden queer histories through archival art practices. The exhibition focuses on the first recorded moment in (European) queer history in Australia: a sodomy trial following the wreck of the Dutch ship the Zeewijk in 1727 where two young men were sentenced to death by marooning. Through photographs, video, audio and installation, this exhibition recontextualises social histories to help us rethink our present.

The exhibition features new work by artists Benjamin Bannan, Nathan Beard, Janet Carter, Lill Colgan, Jo Darbyshire, Brontë Jones, Andrew Nicholls and Colin Smith.
