 ‘There's a chill tonight on the Yarra
Winter is creeping in
While far away my loved ones wake up in England's spring
And although delights await me
All the way to Flinders Street
It's that little piece of heaven
With which they must compete’
Billy Bragg – The Yarra Song

The narrative of our lives is intimately tied to the places in which memories have been made. We accrue history through our surrounds and this is bound to our sense of identity and belonging. Whilst making the etchings for this show Stephanie has reflected upon the importance of home, questioning whether home is the here and now, or in the places where family and memories remain.
