With the support of the ACT Government under the City Renewal Authority's City Grants Program, Cygnus Atratus is a photographic project documenting the black swans of Canberra's urban environment. Native to Ngunnawal country and a constant presence at locations where the urban and natural environments entwine, the project aims connect the city with the lake, and the community with our native wildlife.
The photographs are installed on the exterior and interior of the Alinga Street walkway of the Melbourne Building outside Smith’s Alternative and more can be seen at the artist’s instagram feed via the hashtag:
You can also meet the artist at her studio and see the photographs up close at the Gorman Arts Centre on Sunday the 10th of February, 2-4pm. More information can be found here.
