‘The Land Where The Crow Flies Backwards’ follows the Murray-Darling Basin, Australia’s longest river system. In a time of increasing uncertainty and change, the towns along the river, once considered the backbone of the Australian economy, are now former shadows of themselves.
The land is plagued by drought and society is in flux being threatened by a dwindling youth population and high unemployment while the local Indigenous community is still reeling from the ongoing scars of colonisation.
Along the river, the fragility of life is an everyday reality.
Matthew Abbott’s work explores what it is to live in Australia today, unearthing the surreal from the everyday. Straddling the genres of documentary and fine art, Abbott’s work examines human relationships in this immense and isolated landscape and the population’s impact on the natural world.
‘The Land Where The Crow Flies Backwards’ will be the launching exhibition at The Fox Gallery. Join the Facebook event to stay up-to-date.
