The title for this exhibition came, quite literally, when I was finding a place to live in Launceston after leaving Hobart in 2014. This unsettling resettling process lends itself to closer examination of the urban environment and our place in it. In the hillslopes of both Hobart and Launceston, the tension between wild bush and tamed gardens is evident. In our townscapes we seek order and control. From the moment that the first colonial fence posts were put into the ground, the concept of wilderness was born, creating an illusion of separation between human society and its environment.

Inka gallery is proud to be a participant in the COLLECT art purchase scheme for interest free loans to purchase Tasmanian art.

The COLLECT Art Purchase Scheme offers Australian residents twelve month interest-free loans to purchase artworks by contemporary Tasmanian artists, from select arts businesses across the state. It is an initiative of arts@work, the arts industry development unit of the Tasmanian Government.
How much can I borrow?
The minimum amount you can borrow is $750 and the maximum is $7875. The minimum retail price for an artwork able to be purchased using a COLLECT loan is $400, so you will need to buy at least two $400 artworks to be eligible for a $750 loan. There is no application or administrative fees.
