The artists in Please Allow Me To Introduce Myself, the third curated exhibition at Strange Neighbour, present works that contain motifs informed by the influence and ecology of the Australian colonial & post-colonial landscape. It is a place where whitefella follies have transformed a true Arcadia into an infested and feral exotic. This is a landscape where the Australian environment does not resemble a pristine postcard wilderness, nor a European re-imagined Utopia. Instead, it is a strange altered land, strangled and seduced by introduced flora and fauna.
