One of the must-see artworks for Habits of Horses is this life-sized horse created by Matt McVeigh in collaboration with Juli Coffin, but you only have until 3pm tomorrow afternoon to see it atMundaring Arts Centre.
Matt's arts practice is focused on acknowledging histories that have been suppressed and unheard. This work is an acknowledgement of the important work giving hope to our future generations. Professor Juli Coffin, a Nyangumarta woman, is one of those heroes doing incredible work using horse therapy, especially with Aboriginal youth. For Matt, this artwork is his way, as a Wadjula, of giving a voice to those unsung heroes, people like Juli, and an acknowledgement of the past and present circumstances faced by Aboriginal people. A horse can lead to a better course.
