A world premiere by acclaimed Welsh artist Gareth Phillips, Interstates of Becoming is about the relationship between human beings and their shared environments, specifically in the Himalayan mountains of Northwest India. Wild environments and human constructions grapple for superiority and control in a landscape of concrete, steel, immense rockfaces and mountainscapes. With this unique and fragile landscape as a focal point, this constructed photobook sculpture and large-scale installation depicts the direct and indirect effects humans and mountains have on one another in their interdependent life-spans.

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.
