Summary Contemporary Australian Aboriginal art is multi-layered art practice that utilises compelling politics. Aboriginal Art that addresses the urban Aboriginal condition reflects upon a rich socio-cultural history that is inter-connected with identity, place and the environment. Art remains critical as a tool for further reconciliatory acts. Ben'Ography is a body of artworks that examines the disjunctions of Aboriginal people living between cultures. The project explores from a personal perspective, questions of Indigeneity, sexuality, placement, loss and discovery in 21st century Australia.
