Deep Rest - Melaleuca bark.

Deep Rest

This exhibition is a response to an epic adventure Oakey made in October 2023. In search of deep rest, the Kaurna-based artist climbed on her motorbike and rode 1,500km to Yaegl Country, Northern NSW to take part in a solo bush wilderness retreat.
This was a four-day/four-night experience that involved sleeping on the forest floor inside a circle four metres wide: alone, no food, only water for sustenance and a mosquito net and tarp for protection.
The experience was deeply transformative and regenerative. Many of the featured works in this exhibition were realised during these days of introspection and release.
