About the Maker: Lea Durie
Lea Is currently undertaking a Master’s in Contemporary Art Practices at the ANU School of Art and Design. She has been the recipient of the ANU Boronia award for excellence, the Craft ACT Emerging Contemporaries Award with Craft ACT, the 3D award at the QPRC Art Prize 2023, the Doug Alexander Award 2021 from the Canberra Potters and is a finalist in the national Klytie Pate Ceramics Award 2023. Her work has been included in a number of group shows in the ACT, Victoria and NSW.
Lea explores notions of place and use of land in her practice. Her work investigates the layers of human and non-human impact on the landscape. Through the marks and traces of what existed before now and what remains, she considers how land use and land control change a place. What do we know of who or what is impacted, who benefits and what is lost.
