“As far as we know, there is no Edge to the universe. When we gaze out to the night sky, even with our naked eyes, we see boundlessness. It is only recently that the planet was redefined by frontiers.” Lily Hibberd

Lily Hibberd is an interdisciplinary artist and writer working with frontiers of time and memory. Her projects are developed in long term place and community-based collaboration, and research with local artists, scientists and historians through combinations of performance, writing, painting, photography, sound, moving image and installation art.

Hibberd is drawn, and is often invited, to create new encounters with marginalised histories and otherwise intangible or contested dimensions of the past in the present.

Commissioned by the Biennale of Sydney with generous support from the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body.
