Dale Harding creates murals, sculptures and installations. His work explores the political, social and familial narratives of the Bidjara, Ghungalu and Garingbal peoples (from whom he is descended) as well as their network of cultural sites across Queensland. The artist draws parallels between his ancestors’ territories, the former factory that houses his Brisbane studio, and the Fagor Factory, which is now hosting the Biennale. By gathering coloured traces of these sites’ various uses, then turning them into paintings on walls and glass, he creates a common visual language that travels through space and time.
