Daniel Boyd draws on his heritage as a Kudjla/Gangalu man from North Queensland and North Pentecost Island in Vanuatu to interrogate legacies of colonisation. Traversing an archaeology of lost and suppressed histories, Boyd reinterprets artistic and archival material across art, science, history and geography in order to challenge Eurocentric perspectives and romanticised notions that dominate the historical canon. His work acknowledges the multitude of collective, cultural and personal memories at the core of historical imagery, and seeks to create a context for a diaspora of meaning to exist.
