Abstract

Research background
The Long Paddock is an exploratory exhibition initiated by the New Landscapes Institute (UNSW) that critically and creatively examines the history and the future of Travelling Stock Routes (TSRs) network.
Research contribution
This ekphrastic poem complements new work from other visual artists, sculptors, poets and installation artists in exploring and critiquing connections between the Riverina (and Wagga in particular) as a locus of identity caught up in tropes of pastoral tradition, competing mythologies and economic forces.
Research significance
While the TSRs are a uniquely Australian phenomenon, they are located within a worldwide context of disappearing cultural routes and nomadic pastoral practices making this a timely and important project. Participating artists have responded by making video, sculptural, textual and sound-based installations.
