    Abstract

    The research engages the rigorous scholarship that has generated new complex understandings of the habitual 'blind-spots' arising from the epistemological dichotomies of the contested history of genocide of Van Diemen's Land. Anachronistic imagery and ambiguous forms as installation operate in defiance of a logical narrative imaginatively challenging and spatially problematizing the legacies of the received assumptions and denials of the brutal, contested colonial history that continues to disturb the present through unresolved, confronting cross-cultural issues of identity and trauma.
