Yhonnie Scarce is currently exhibiting in the Biennale of Sydney (AGNSW) and major work has recently been acquired by the Art Gallery of Western Australia and the National Gallery of Victoria. Her solo exhibition at dianne tanzer gallery + projects draws on research into eugenics and scientific experimentation upon Aboriginal people. Scarce employs techniques that use medical equipment to pinch and pull her glass bush-fruits – metaphors for the manipulation of culture – a significant theme that Yhonnie exposes through her work. Scarce’s glass work is as delicate in its beauty as it is strong in the stories that it embodies.
