Beneath looks at the concept of home, and how the places where we are raised plays a role in the construction of identity. How does a label like ‘Australian’ bring about feelings of guilt and restlessness?
Having to embrace the ‘Australian larrikin’ narrative creates a feeling of personal unease; it reinforces an undercurrent of social injustices. This feeling is further exacerbated by a nation-wide reluctance to face the history from which modern Australia benefits. Beneath reflects on these unsettling feelings I often shy away from, but am forced to confront in the places I call home.

Writers were invited to respond to one, some or all of the photographs from Wouter Van de Voorde's body of work, STORM.
Australia faced one of its worst bush fire seasons during the summer of 2019 going on to 2020, with around 18,636,079 hectares burnt.
In response to this national tradegy, we teamed up with our friends at Rewind Photo Lab and a few artists we have worked with in the past to get a print sale up and running, with 100% of proceeds to be split between WIRES and FIRE RELIEF FUND FOR FIRST NATIONS COMMUNITIES.
Due to not meeting the deadline for FIRE RELIEF FUND FOR FIRST NATIONS COMMUNITIES, we decided to split that half of the funds between SEED MOB and FIRESTICKS ALLIANCE.
We raised $2,200.00
Artists in order:
