Comments from her Residency:
An Island of Solitude is a presentation of artworks created by Alice Blanch during an artistic residency on Flinders Island, Tasmania in late 2014.
"For five weeks, from the start of August to mid September 2014, I stayed on Flinders Island, a small island located in the Bass Strait between Victoria and Tasmania.
For Five weeks I stayed on a farm at the southern end of the island. The farm was surrounded on most sides by national park and was situated at the base of the highest mountain on the island, Mt Strzelecki.
For five week I tried to comprehend this new, overwhelming landscape.
For five weeks I lost myself in the solitude of the island."
