Out of Nowhere is a collaborative exhibition that explores the loss of wildlife found on Tasmanian roads. Each of the three rooms have been given a title; impact, transformation and resolution, and artists were allocated a room for creative exploration and interpretation.

Using paint to restore dignity through the act of making art. The impact room mirrors the experience of driving on Tasmanian roads, where every 3kms there is an animal fatality. A statistic that makes this island the roadkill capital of the world.

This room explores ways to honour the loss of life due to human impact. This intuitive response is the result of a creative process that is both ritualistic and cathartic in nature. Where animal bones, skulls, hides and feathers are used to create artworks that honour the spirit of the animal.

This room invites the audience to contemplate the life/death/life cycle, land and title ownership, fences, roads, and personal responsibility. So native animals can graze freely as they have done so for thousands of years.
