Beauty and cruelty. Beauty prevails over cruelty. Samson & Delilah writer/director Warwick Thornton, from Alice Springs, provokes and challenges with his conceptual art. Tasmanian artist Julie Gough is intent on finding out truths about the past and conveying them by repurposing colonial objects and natural materials. The 2004 Palm Island riots - and those at Cronulla - inspired Brisbane artist Vernon Ah Kee, as have family photographs taken during a genealogy expedition in the 1930s.
