Jill Orr’s site-specific performance and photographic work centres on the psycho- social and environmental where she draws on land and identities as they are shaped in, on and with the environment be it country or urban locales.

PHOTO Australia respectfully acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands upon which we work and live, and the rich and diverse Indigenous cultures across what is now called Australia. For over 60,000 years, Indigenous arts and culture have thrived on this sacred land, and we honour Elders and cultural leaders past and present. This was, and always will be, Aboriginal land.
