Human Impact on Habitats
in the Yarra Ranges and Alpine Shire


The exhibition aims to raise awareness of human-made imprints on natural environments and the impact on fragile ecosystems that support indigenous flora and fauna. Curated by Madelynne Cornish and Sarah Lynch, the exhibition presents the work of seven artists who have all undertaken an art residency at Bogong Centre for Sound Culture, situated in the foothills of the Alpine National Park. The curators selected the Yarra Ranges as a corresponding site where similar issues occur.

Between Two Sites is an exhibition that features regional, established, and emerging artists. The curators were passionate about embedding accessibility into the exhibition and ensuring that it is accessible to blind and low-vision communities. Descriptions of the artwork are available in audio and text formats on the exhibition website and via QR code on the didactics displayed beside the works.

“The Between Two Sites exhibition highlights the importance of environmental conservation and how human interventions have changed the natural world,” says Madelynne Cornish, one of the curators. “We’re excited to exhibit the work of these talented artists and raise awareness of the issues impacting our natural environments.”

Artists include: Shannon Collis, Madelynne Cornish, Lesley Duxbury, Sarah Edwards, Amias Hanley, Sarah Lynch & Anne McCallum
