Throughout European history, literature, music and theatre, the black swan has been attributed with dark symbolism, having a sinister and seductive association with evil. In this her first solo exhibition at Gallerysmith, Fernandez repositions the swan, and other emblematic flora and fauna representative of Western Australian identity, as trenchant symbols, to explore dark undertones of the state’s brutal history.
