Recovering The Past
A poignant photographic exploration of the physical and psychological consequences of war
This powerful and timely photographic exhibition documents the physical and psychological consequences of the Great War on Australian society. Comprising a series of 25 thought provoking images, with accompanying quotes sourced from Australian Archives, the exhibition lays bare the tragedy of Australia’s shell-shocked and traumatised returning soldiers, war widows and grieving mothers. It simultaneously depicts the lethal legacy of unexploded ordinance from the Great War, routinely unearthed in Belgium’s fields, construction sites and backyards to this day.
The exhibition will be on show from Monday 4th November – Saturday 30th November.
There is a special opening on Thursday 7th from 6pm.
The gallery hours during the week: 10am - 4pm
Weekends and public holidays: 9am - 1pm
Entry to the gallery is free.
