Louise Cattrell

Artists Residency and Arts Council England Award

Friday 10th October 2008

The Imaging the Land International Research Institute (ILIRI) was established in 2003 by a group of artist-lecturers within the School of Art at the College of Fine Arts (COFA) at UNSW. One of ILIRI’s aims is to encourage dialogue across a wide spectrum of approaches to imaging the land in art; a dialogue composed not only of words, but also of enduring artworks.

Central to this vision is the creation of opportunities for artists to work in the Australian desert. The desert is a significant site in the context of Indigenous and Western art making in Australia. Through the ILIRI Research Resident Program and the ILIRI Artist Scholar Program, ILIRI seeks to provide a unique opportunity for artists to experience the Australian desert and rethink their representations of the land. I have been awarded a research residency from the 10/31st October 2008.

North to South has been awarded by the Arts Council England a project that includes the residency and an exhibition at the Black Swan Arts Centre in Frome, Somerset Jan/Feb 2009. There wil be an ‘In Conversation’ with Laura Cumming, Art Critic of the Observer, during the exhibition.
