Dale Harding: Wall Composition in Bimbird and Reckitt's Blue

7.9.2018, Interviews

Using a stencil technique practised by his ancestors, Dale Harding has created a large-scale wall painting at Tate Liverpool which is inspired by rock art sites in Queensland, Australia. Hear the artist discuss the use of the pigment Reckitt's Blue – a colour with strong colonial connections – through which Harding tells stories of female labour and connects histories from different parts of the globe.

Liverpool Biennial 2018: Beautiful world, where are you? takes place across the city’s public spaces, galleries and civic buildings from 14 July until 28 October.
