Remnants looks to find connection between two distinct (geographical) locations, Rangitata River, New Zealand and the Darling River, Australia, through the exploration of fragility within the landscape as a result of water mismanagement.
Bernadette Facer‘s artistic processes are often influenced by the sombre and contemplative black protest paintings of Hone Papita Raukura ‘Ralph’ Hotere. Her works often depict braided rivers as shadow water or ata wai. Black on black printing methods are used to serve as a dual representation for memory and of the depletion of resources, in the agricultural district from which she hails, Waitara (Canterbury).
