Every part of Australia is, always was and always will be, Aboriginal land. As a community gathering-place, a festival of arts, cultural exchange and celebration and as a site for the sharing of ideas and stories, Ten Days on the Island pays respect to the palawa – original owners and cultural custodians - of all the lands and waters across lutruwita/Tasmania upon which our Festival takes place.

Artist Vic McEwan discusses his work, Haunting, at the Burnie Regional Art Gallery.

When Vic McEwan visited the Murrumbidgee River, he projected photographs and videos onto the air itself. Campfire smoke and mist provided a continually changing frame, merging art with environment. Prints of this site-specific installation will be displayed at the Burnie Regional Art Gallery, encouraging us to contemplate human history and the consequences of our past. McEwan produced large-scale work as part of his 2015 residency at the National Museum of Australia, collaborating with curator George Main. In capturing images of historic museum objects and painting them onto the moving landscape, McEwan responded to dynamic environmental conditions and contested histories.
