Join us in welcoming the Blue Cabin’s first-ever artist in residence, Vicki Couzens – possum cloak maker, multi-media artist, and member of the Keerray Wooroong language group of the Gunditjmara of western Victoria, Australia. Vicki is a Senior Knowledge Custodian for Possum Cloak Story and Language Reclamation in her Keerray Woorroong Mother Tongue.
The Blue Cabin has released the first in a series of videos produced by Krista Lomax in collaboration with Australia Council for the Arts. This first video explores the rich history of the cabin from its creation in 1927, to its journey to Cates Park on the North Shore and its eventual move to Maplewood Farm for restoration.
On Monday, September 16th the Blue Cabin welcomed Australian Indigenous artist Vicki Couzens, the first Blue Cabin Floating Artist Resident. Jet lag and pouring rain didn’t stop Vicki from hopping on False Creek Ferries to get her first glimpse of the Blue Cabin as the last of the construction was being completed.
