alking Place: Unfolding Conversations is a collaborative exhibition between Tracy Hill, Monika Lukowska, Annette Nykiel, Sarah Robinson, and Jane Whelan that explores the significance of wetlands with particular focus on Lake Walyungup; a shallow, ephemeral salt-lake in the Rockingham area known by the local Noongar people as ‘the place where people talk’. Lake Walyungup is a seemingly forgotten, empty space in the midst of a growing urban community which offers shelter to migratory birds and wildlife. It has a deep history embedded in thrombolite remains, links with the Noongar community and various historical uses by the passing groups of settlers and armed forces.

The exhibition interweaves traditional techniques including drawing, bricolage, lithography, etching, and dry point with the digital technologies of drone videos, 3D prints, and Lidar survey scanning in a synthesis of techniques that expand the boundaries of contemporary print. Through multidisciplinary works and collaborative exploration, we aim to unfold our experience of place, its characteristics, atmosphere, meaning and significance.
