Asha Southcombe


Basing her research in queer ecology, over the past year Asha has documented entanglements of the human and more-than-human. Walking within the Onkaparinga River National Park that raise questions of our binary definition of what is ‘natural’. Line becomes an inherent link across her work, transforming the lines she walks into lines she draws, emoting similar meditative states, repetitive movement and time taken during both processes. Reflecting on the history of these sites, she integrates aspects of mapping into her work, emphasising this overhanging presence of the human upon the ‘natural’ space.
