"Terra Australis Incognita" is a continuation of ideas that were first developed in a body of work produced in 2006 called ?Waking Dreams: An Australian Portrait?.
In this recent work I have begun to explore issues concerning identity within an historically colonial context. This has come about through my interest in exploring different connotations of ?colonialism? from an African perspective, where I was born, as compared to the Australian experience.
The concept of ?terra australis? was based firmly within a colonial epistemology. To this day this continues to have an impact upon contemporary notions of Australian cultural identity.
