Black Matter refers to the Gondwana- the unified Southern continent that amalgamated at the beginning of the Palaeozoic and progressively fragmented- to deepen into present environmental, cultural and social matters that concern Australia and Chile.

Through art residencies, symposiums, exhibitions and publications that address deep matters such as place and identity, Black Matter is carefully tying the ends of the ancient Gondwana Margin, weaving a fabric of connections between Australia and Chile based on reciprocity.

Conceived within a self-guided approach and from a multidisciplinary perspective, Black Matter ultimately investigates the process of translation as a system that links time-place-identity-knowledge and that is deeply rooted in the geographic memory of the South.

Black Matter is supported by Arts Tasmania and by the Ministerio de las Culturas, las Artes y el Patrimonio de Chile.
