Queer on Country is a new series of six works by Ngarigu artist Peter Waples-Crowe on display at The Substation outdoor Billboard Gallery. In creating these artworks, Peter has embarked on a deeply spiritual journey, reflecting upon their identity and blurring the binaries of their intersecting lived experiences as a queer Ngarigu person.

Peter is an emerging queer Elder based in Naarm (Melbourne) who works across the mediums of performance, sculpture, drawing, collage, costuming and scenic design to create bold, complex and multi-layered compositions infused with symbolism, narrative and visual language that investigates the representation of First Nations people in popular culture.

Peter is also a community health worker with over 25 years experience in Indigenous health across the country. Their experiences in the fields of Indigenous and LGBTQIA+ health also contribute toward their creative practice and their experience as a community cultural development worker.
