My Mother’s Keeper will feature a film and a series of new photographs produced as a result of a collaboration between the artist Karla Dickens and writer Bruce Pascoe.

This new body of work extends Stockdale’s long-held fascination with early colonial times in Australia. The Long Shot explores the dominant narratives of Australian folk history, mythology and iconography and challenges their potency within a contemporary context. Based on extensive research, Stockdale presents a new version of Ned Kelly’s family history, with a focus on the experiences of Kelly’s mother, Ellen.
