Tarkine (Takanya) is the largest temperate rainforest in the Southern Hemisphere, spanning some 495,000 hectares. During their travels, Walls and Ball witnessed the potentially devastating effects of logging and mining in this ancient corner of the state and returned with a desire to conserve it for future generations.

A portion of the exhibition sales will go to the Bob Brown Foundation, a not-for-profit foundation working to preserve our country’s ecosystems.

Duration: 8th-16th of November
