GASH was created for a project funded by Arts Queensland. In this artwork the crossXions group exhibit theme of eco feminism is explored but it is also a deeper exploration of the artists personal notion of identity. ‘GASH’ is an open gaping wound, a life-size waterfall of exposed roots pulsing, quivering and twitching - it is an impossible uncanny grotesque hybrid monstrosity which writhes and moans in its struggle to survive in a compulsively cruel concrete capitalist society. This is a scar story of compulsions seeking to break free of the kairological loop. This artwork is based on digital photographs collected at the Bunya mountains while participating in the UQ School of Biological Sciences Artist In Residence program in 2014. During this residency I collaborated with ecologists: Dr Margaret Mayfield, Dr Tobias Smith, Dr John Dwyer, PhD candidate Lachlan Charles, Lois Eden, Selena Hobbs and theorist Dr Allison Holland
