Maree Clarke

Maree Clarke

Maree Clarke, a Mutti Mutti, Yorta Yorta, BoonWrung woman from northwest Victoria, began working as an Aboriginal Educator in 1978 in her home-town of Mildura. This work experience, provided a solid base from which to begin her career in supporting and promoting southeast Australian Aboriginal histories, culture and knowledge.

Maree’s working life as an artist has seen her develop as a pivotal figure in the reclamation of southeast Australian Aboriginal art practices, as well as a leader in nurturing and promoting the diversity of contemporary southeast Aboriginal artists.

Between 2004 and 2009 Maree studied and completed a Masters of Arts titled Reflections on Creative Practice, Place & Identity, at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT) University, Melbourne.

Her research provided the inspiration for a series of art projects that enabled her to reinvigorate the designs of her Ancestors in her contemporary art practice, including the designs on shields and the processes connected with necklace making. This research continues to be significant in providing information to the museum about the material culture of her Ancestors.

Among the most exciting and inspirational projects to develop from this period of Maree’s artistic career has been her work in relation to reclaiming possum-skin cloaks with fellow Koorie artists Vicki Couzens, Lee Darroch and Treahna Hamm. The artists through their research of the designs and the practice of cloak making were involved in a State wide Victoria, possum skin cloak making project. This resulted in a number of contemporary cloaks being designed and worn by 35 Elders and community representatives at the opening ceremony of the 2006 Melbourne Commonwealth Games. The significance of the project was in the revival not only of cloak-making skills, but it became the first time in over 150 years that possum-skin cloaks had been worn for ceremonial purposes.

More recently Maree’s continuing desire to affirm and reconnect with her cultural heritage has also seen her exhibiting contemporary designs of kangaroo teeth necklaces, along with string headbands, adorned with kangaroo teeth. These items, based on 19th century kangaroo teeth necklaces and headbands held at the Melbourne Museum, were exhibited at Nga Woka, Woka Nganin:I am the land and the land is Me. This exhibition was the culmination of Maree’s intensive work collecting kangaroo teeth and sinew, this also enabled her to emphasise her continuing connections to Country as well as reinforcing her family and kinship connections which included passing on knowledge of this practice to her brothers, sisters, nieces and nephews.

The latest exhibition of Maree’s work to achieve acclaim has been her creation and installation ‘Ritual and Ceremony’ using kopi mourning caps. These awe inspiring caps represent Maree’s latest work researching the ‘Rituals and Ceremonies’ of her Ancestors.

Maree’s inclusive approach to art practices – where art and culture are inseparable to all other aspects of life, has seen her involved in working with many members of the Aboriginal community. The capacity for art to enable people to reconnect with their cultural heritage and to assist in their recovery remains central to Maree’s philosophy concerning the power of art to heal and inspire people to positively identify with their Aboriginality, a process that for some continues to be difficult given the ongoing negative effects of colonisation.

Maree continues to curate exhibitions showcasing the development of contemporary southeast Australian Aboriginal art and culture and remains one of the key figures today in the story of southeast Australian Aboriginal art and the practice of cultural reclamation.


Patricia Piccinini

Patricia Piccinini is at the forefront of contemporary Australian art. From her early 'Protein Lattice' images, depicting a human ear growing on a mouse, to her recent 'Skywhale', Piccinini has continually created highly topical and engaging works which question our modern relationship to the laboratory. Exploring notions of maternity and connection through increasingly 'unnatural' scientific organisms, her work can be simultaneously unsettling yet tender.
