“I have always felt that my work comes from an Aboriginal experience. As I have grown as an artist and person and have had the opportunity to travel, I have come to understand that the underlying concepts attached to my work belong to the edge and periphery of our society. The edge of our society creates a link with the edge of the next. I think these links are often the strongest and most interesting.”

This work was created as part of a banner-making workshop between Tony Albert and members of Seed Indigenous Youth Climate Network, a movement driven by young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in the name of climate justice. The banner comes from Albert’s ongoing practice of opening up his studio to engage and collaborate with different communities and movements. The banner both challenges and asserts interconnected issues of land, sovereignty, protest, environmental devastation and the mass extraction of earth’s resources.
