A newly acquired work from Pilar Mata Dupont, Undesirable bodies 2018, features as part of The Botanical: Beauty and Peril exhibition. Filmed at, and in, Jurndawurrunha—a natural freshwater spring sacred to the Yindjibarndi people of the Pilbara region—the work considers, through poetry of filmic means, introduced ground and underwater flora as a form of colonisation and how contemporary conservation efforts can restore the equilibrium.
