sally molloy, backyard worlds
accompanying text by sally molloy
sally molloy is an artist based in brisbane, queensland. sally’s practice is concerned with interrogating her relationship with place and critiquing the colonial legacy that shaped/s her white suburban social reality. orbiting around conceptual terrains of whiteness studies, postcolonial theory, and the problematical australian landscape tradition; her work is often awkwardly humorous and fused with an uneasy reverence. sally works across disciplines such as painting, video, sculpture, composition, needlework, collage, and poetry, often questioning the implied hierarchy of media with her naïve aesthetic and enthusiasm for play. sally is a current phd candidate at the queensland college of art where she is exploring her relationship to the taken-never-ceded indigenous lands she inhabits, and loves.
