The Hidden is a multi-channel film and sound installation by Australian filmmaker and artist Tim Georgeson and composer, performer and proud Kalkadunga man, William Barton. It offers a personal account of the Bundanon land and waterscapes in New South Wales, Australia.
Our presentation of The Hidden at Messums Wiltshire underlines aspects at the heart of our programming. Appreciation and empathy for nature underpins this ethos and we endeavour to support artists whose work helps to expand our awareness and understanding of the natural environment.

View collection
This exhibition presents selected works by artists from, or inspired by, Australia and New Zealand, in celebration of our season focused on Antipodean culture and heritage. The collection of work is diverse while the artists are connected by their emotional and psychological engagement with the Australasian landscape and outback topography.

It is this deeply-rooted commitment to a sense of place that enlivens their imagination and fuels their practice – the landscape consciously or unconsciously entering their work and, ultimately, their values. Included in the exhibition are works by painter Euan Macleod, ceramicist Ros Auld and master printmaker Diane Fogwell.
The exhibition extends to showcase a group of works by leading practitioners of the Papunya Tula Artist group including Ray James Tjangala, Turkey Tolson Tjupurrula, Florrie Watson Napangati and Leonie Napaltjarri.

In this remote desert community, artists have transformed what had once been temporal body decoration and ground paintings into paintings on board and canvas using iconography and design drawn from their own culture.
