Mar 5, 2020 - Apr 12, 2020


The premiere of Lisa Reihana's photographic series from and to coincide with her 3D immersive film of the same title Nomads of the Sea, part of the Biennale of Sydney. The film and photographs tell the intriguing story of Charlotte Badger, Australia's first female pirate. Nomads of the Sea weaves historical fact with fiction to explore the social tension between cultural leadership, spiritual custom and egotistical desire in the face of foreign political challenge in 1800’s New Zealand.
