In July 2018, the Ghost Net Art Project headed towards Yalata. An Aboriginal community located 200kms West of Ceduna on the Great Australian Bight, in beautiful South Australia.

Funded by Alinytjara Wilurara Natural Resource Management, Department of Environment and Water and Ceduna Arts, the team arrived in Yalata with a trailer full of old fishing nets, rope and other washed up materials they had collected and pulled from our Australian coastlines.

In addition, the Yalata Youth Group also collected marine debris as a part of this study into marine debris, which included materials from the popular and well known coastal town of Port Lincoln.

The end result of this workshop were two spectacular sculptures. Obviously, the debris that is found determines what the sculptures and final art pieces will be. The result = a Killer Whale and the Harlequin Fish.

Two weeks after the workshop, the sculptures were driven back to Ceduna Arts and suspended in the local studio space where Ceduna artists added the final touches.
