An exhibition of work including Victoria Royds opened at the Belconnen Arts Centre Canberra on Friday evening.
The ‘Nearly Birds’ Exhibition is a collaboration between Victoria, photographer Judith Crispin and poet Paul Hetherington. The exhibition explores aspects of grace, and the vulnerability and courage of human beings as they face the inevitability of old age and death. Each of these collaborative pieces evokes a mythological hero or heroine from literature, each with their own individual approach to grace and transcendence. The exhibition runs until Sunday 3 February.
