Saturday 29 February 5-7pm
The traveling exhibition from Monash University Museum of Art (MUMA) is the result of Castillo Deball’s research trip to the Flinders Ranges Ediacaran Hills, famous for the fossils found there that shed light on an entire new era in history. Combining photographic imagery, lino prints, scientific data and display systems Replaying Life’s Tape considers and contests the relationships between site, time and history.
