Leila Jeffreys: Nature is not a place to visit. It is home

Access info

Using some of the world’s most advanced slow-motion film technology, Leila Jeffreys draws a parallel between the bonds that exist between humans, the way actions can shape collective behaviour and the intimate dynamics of the flock.

Jeffreys is renowned for her stunning photographs of birds, often highlighting the precarious state of their habitats.

The video will be displayed on the Art Screen in Alfred Deakin Place beside the Gallery, alongside photographs on lightboxes from Jeffreys’ 2019 series High Society.

Across Victoria’s Midwest, we acknowledge that we travel across the ancient landscapes of many First Peoples communities.

These lands have been nurtured and cared for over tens of thousands of years and we respect the work of Traditional Custodians for their ongoing care and protection.

We recognise the past injustices against Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in this country. As our knowledge grows, we hope that we can learn from their resilience and creativity that has guided them for over 60,000 years.

As we invite people to visit and explore Victoria’s Midwest, we ask that alongside us, you also grow to respect the stories, living culture and connection to Country of the Ancestors and Elders of our First Peoples.
