Following an extensive 18 months of consultation and collaboration with the Dja Dja Wurrung community, Bangarang artist Peta Clancy has debuted her latest exhibition, Undercurrent, at Fed Square's Koorie Heritage Trust. Clancy worked closely with the Dja Dja Wurrung community to explore numerous massacre sites and areas of Bendigo and central Victoria that saw extensive frontier violence to create this major series of landscape photographs.

To create these large images, Clancy revisited the sites numerous times over a period of months, experiencing them at different times of day and in disparate weather conditions. She has also used a specific cutting and layering technique, which gives the photographs a unique look. More importantly, however, it also serves as a visual motif for the emotional and cultural scars left on the landscape by frontier violence and colonial occupation.

Exploring themes of history, memory and place, Undercurrent features eight new works and a 30-metre wallpaper installation, plus a soundscape and audio interviews from the region's Traditional Owners.
