Artist Yhonnie Scarce speaks about her new commission ‘Missile Park’
Watch our artist interview Yhonnie Scarce, discussing her ambitious new commission Missile Park showing at ACCA until 14 June 2021.
Yhonnie Scarce was born in Woomera, South Australia in 1973, and belongs to the Kokatha and Nukunu peoples. Yhonnie Scarce is an artist known for sculptural installations which span architecturally-scaled public art projects to intimately-scaled assemblages replete with personal and cultural histories. Scarce is a master glass-blower, which she puts to the service of spectacular and spectral installations full of aesthetic, cultural and political significance. Her work also engages the photographic archive and found objects to explore the impact and legacies of colonial and family histories and memory.
