Dark + Disturbing is a curatorial project that explores Aboriginal sensibilities around knowledge, identity, and protest. It interrogates power structures and provides a platform for Aboriginal voice.
“Dark + Disturbing” references the place the “aborigine” holds in this country. The “aborigine” is either rendered invisible, as in terra nullius, or is made negative and pathologised as a problem or a curse. Vernon Ah Kee
