Formed in 2014 on Kaurna Yarta, Adelaide, Australia.
The Unbound Collective considers ideas of what it means to be both bound and free; what we are bound to historically and, as sovereign people, what we choose to (un)bind ourselves to and from, both now and into the future. The collective responds through embodied projection and public performance interrogations of State colonial archives; notions of ethical practice and responsibility; enacting memory and storytelling; and enacting sovereign identity and (re)representation. When our ancestors’ voices are heard and listened to, this compels a call and response engagement with the broader Aboriginal community. Through film, performance, projection, grandmother-stories and poetics we can all speak back.
