In Mother Tongue, Zoë Croggon considers the human compulsion to divide and partition land. Croggon writes: “I am interested in the concept of the border, the map, the territory. My collage work is largely characterised by a ‘split’, where two contrasting images intersect and amalgamate. In the context of this body of work I consider the ‘split’ as a division, or border, introducing geographical, political, and historical meaning into the formal arrangement.”

Mother Tongue examines the interior and exterior borders that shape our lives, and interrogates their meanings—what they include and also what they exclude.

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.
