Bone Library and Shelters special events


Sarah-Jane Norman has been engraving a complete dictionary of “extinct” Indigenous Australian languages onto the prepared bones of sheep and beef cattle in a confronting durational performance within City Library. Visit Bone Library today to become a public trustee of one of the bones. A national registry will be created for the public record, detailing the whereabouts of each bone.

And visit Docklands this afternoon for a sunset closing celebration of Shelters. Joseph L. Griffiths’ handmade, improvised dwellings have been captivating audiences in the polarising surrounds of the ‘docks’, creating a very unusual and sorely needed experience in the area.
