The Island by Ben Quilty (2018)
“As we accelerate towards a warmer planet we inevitably question familiar images, places or ideas that are susceptible to irreversible change.
Islands seem primed for the symbolic and metaphorical, and as a consequence have long been made to accommodate the projections of western ‘explorers’, writers, poets, scientists. Edenic paradise, ecological sanctuary or sites of complete loneliness, islands are constantly reduced as such by those new arrivals.”
