Bogs and Fens: artist-in-residence
In 2014, Craft ACT in partnership with ACT Parks and Conservation Service and the Australian National Botanic Gardens hosted three artists; Satoshi Fujinuma (Japan), Annee Miron (Melbourne) and Sally Blake (Canberra) as artists-in-residence. They responded to the theme of Bogs and Fens and were inspired by their residences at Gudgenby Ready-Cut Cottage in Namadgi National Park and at Nil Desperandum Homestead in Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve and through their focussed research period at the Australian National Botanic Gardens. This exhibition showcases new works in response to the residency and research period.essay
