Dr Peta Clancy

Dr Peta Clancy is a descendent of the Bangerang people from south-eastern Australia. Through her photographic work Dr Clancy explores hidden histories of colonisation, events which threatened the survival of her ancestors. Through processes of manually manipulating photographic prints and rephotographing these, through processes that layer time, the past and the present, Dr Clancy aims to re-construct and bring to light these hidden histories in a contemporary setting. Through these photographs Dr Clancy seeks to challenge the viewer to focus on what may have been missed, denied or hidden. Dr Clancy has been awarded the 2018 Fostering Koorie Art and Culture and the Koorie Heritage Trust Residency Grant funded by the Indigenous Languages and Arts Program.

Dr Clancy has a PhD from Monash University; Master of Arts (Media Arts), RMIT University; Bachelor of Fine Arts Honours, University of Tasmania; Bachelor of Fine Arts, RMIT University. Dr Clancy is the Associate Dean, Indigenous Senior Lecturer, Fine Art at Monash.
