Peta Clancy—

Bangerang
B. 1970, Australia

Peta Clancy is a descendant of the Bangerang people from south-eastern Australia, her photographic works explore hidden histories of colonisation and events that threatened the survival of her ancestors. Through manipulated photography, Clancy calls attention to the way that the past and present are layered within the landscape. She aims to reconstruct and bring to light histories that have been missed, veiled or denied, re-focusing our perspectives on Indigenous sites of significance. Clancy is a senior lecturer at Monash Art Design & Architecture, Monash University. She has exhibited in major survey shows of important Australian art, and is represented in major public and private collections across the country.

"I make my work on country, and it’s informed by doing research and in collaboration with traditional custodians. In the general community people don’t tend to talk and to know about massacre sites."
