Inner View of Coloniality (After Lycett)
Fernando do Campo
In 1819, a convict ship carried ‘Inner View of Newcastle’ a painting by Joseph Lycett from Sydney to Calcutta. This painting speculates on the non-humans that would have accompanied this landscape painting on its journey. The human becomes companion, listener, friend; to a different way of narrating landscape. ‘We’ can rethink landscape via a human and non-human plurality.
