Murrays Cottage

From the written history, books and objects that remain at the cottage and whatever else Higgens can mine, she will build, through drawings and paintings, a new layer of storytelling imagery; a drama of suggested narratives that are simultaneously as real and poignant as any myth and uniquely Hill End.

The plan is for the works to be intertwined and self-referential and at the same time reflect disparate fragments of 150 years of white settlement history and the heritage that the settlers brought with them. Capturing these echoes in a montage of images (such is the quality of mythology) constructed of elements from Hill End's Celtic story, past and present.
