Three Pink Breaths is a unique edition of artworks created by widely recognised and celebrated First Nations artist Dale Harding in the lead up to his solo exhibition at MUMA, opening April 2021. Each work has been created with the artist’s own breath: drawn, released and drawn again, applying pigment to
Harding’s multilayered practice is defined by his sensitive and nuanced approach to materiality and process, and its strong focus on community, family and place. His works pay particular homage to matrilineal female figures in his family, and have come to focus on his mother’s Country, Carnarvon Gorge, from which this ochre is drawn.
Born in 1982 in Moranbah, Harding is a descendant of the Bidjara, Ghungalu and Garingbal peoples of the Country now recognised as Central Queensland, Australia. Harding has achieved impressive career success, both internationally and within Australia, having had his work featured in the 10th Liverpool Biennale (2018), documenta 14 (2017), the 11th Gwangju Biennale (2016), and the international group exhibitions Things Entangling, Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo, Japan (2020); Surface Tension, Sharjah Art Foundation, United Arab Emirates (2019); and The National: New Australian Art, Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney (2017).
