INTRODUCING OUR SITE-SPECIFIC RESIDENCY #2 :

“NOT FOR COUNTRY, BUT FOR SELF” 

ELIZABETH KNUCKEY






“Not For Country, But For Self” is a play on the english translation of the inscription on The Naval Store building which states “NON SIBI SED PATRIAE” in Latin and translates to “not for self, but for country” in English. The phrase and coat of arms — commonly used by the Australian Navy, the original occupants of the Naval Store — will be the starting point for this residency. While researching the history and previous usage of the site, Liz will work with unconventional print processes to create ephemeral and intentionally temporary works within the gallery.

“Like a heritage building, printmaking is so often concerned with archival quality and with preservation. I’m interested in what happens when you take traditional printmaking mediums and apply them to unconventional sites knowing they aren’t meant to last”- Liz.

Liz’s residency will run Monday 22nd January - 21st February 2024



Elizabeth Knuckey is an emerging artist currently living and working on Whadjuk Noongar Boodja. Her practice is an exploration of ephemerality through text and water, often with mediums such as screen printing, video, audio, sculpture and installation.
