Blind 2007

An old house in Nowa Nowa became a site for artists to install their work. The artists could select any part of the interior or exterior of the house. Catherine Larkins chose the house façade and canvas blind which inspired the following collaborative work with Frances Harrison called ‘Blind’.


Frances and Catherine turned the Australian Coat of Arms into the Blackfella’s Coat of Arms. The colonial design is replaced with a local GunaiKurnai shield, kangaroo & emu
