Peta Clancy is a descendant of the Bangerang people from south-eastern Australia. Through her photographic work, she explores hidden histories of colonisation and events which threatened the survival of her ancestors. She uses processes of manually manipulating photographic prints, often printing them to scale and re-photographing them on the same site. Through this, 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 massacre sites on Dja Dja Wurrung country.
