The Tide is High

Megan Cope ArtworkThe Tide is High is Megan Cope’s first solo exhibition in Melbourne which opened on the weekend and will run until Oct 12 at Fehily Contemporary.

The exhibition featured Cope’s flooded military maps of locations from Victoria’s coastline as well as two new bodies of work referencing current social anxieties of the globally swift human tide lapping on Australian shores.


The exhibition also includes geological and mining maps of Victoria’s Gold Rush towns and an ice melting installation titled ‘Blood on the Land’ all of which connect to notions of the passive aggressive resistance to acknowledge Aboriginal ownership and occupation of Australia and Asylum Seekers.
