The subtle transmissions of home

Coming
to this place has called up another for young artist and musician
Claire Wieland. It's not that she isn't seeing and listening to this one
– her Emu series and recording of local voices and songs are charming
testimony that she is.  But time spent in the western desert,
volunteering in the women's centre at Kintore, and then here in town
where she has rented a studio at Watch This Space and mounted an
exhibition in its gallery, have got her thinking about family and
home. The sense of those words for her stretches across the globe,
to the native Switzerland of her father. She was born in Australia but
the Swiss-German connection is strong, not so much through her direct
experience as she has only been there a few times, and only once in
young adulthood. It's more a matter of cultural osmosis, for instance,
through the kind of objects that were around her as she grew up. Pictured: Above – her 'family' of hand-made objects.  KIERAN FINNANE reviews.
