Artist Josephine Telfer at the first Melbourne White Night 23/2/2013


The concept of the billabong rings through the quintessentially Australian song ‘Waltzing Matilda’ and Banjo Patterson’s lyrics. This series of videos has been created from footage taken from truly Australian terrain: a billabong in Northern Victoria. A full moon moving amongst the reflected gum trees surrounding the billabong creates a eerie atmosphere, as do the Australian birdsongs at night. Wisps of mist on the surface of the water remind one of the end of the song: ‘And his ghost may be heard as you walk by the billabong you’ll come a Waltzing Matilda with me’. Josephine Telfer is represented by Stephen McLaughlan Gallery, Melbourne and Artegiro Contemporary Art Montefiascone, Italy
