this mob invites you to celebrate the launch of Black Wattle with an evening of food, music, yarns, and friendship.
Black Wattle is a keeping place: a collection of poetry, photography, collage and illustration developed by this mob arts collective over the last 12 months.
Published by Incendium Radical Library, Black Wattle showcases the work of five key artists and the conversations they exchanged throughout lockdown.
Common themes include tracing waterways, backyard gardens, thinking locally and relationships to place. After the onslaught of screens and digital communication in recent times, refresh your mind and senses with 100 pages of new work in print.
“Warmth, respect, and strength thread our conversations together. We map our connections and disconnections from one another, but also from ourselves. We celebrate the things we have been able to do together and imagine the things we haven’t been able to do together.” – this mob, 2021.
