The search has come to a dead halt (Poss and Harold), Cheviot Beach, Portsea. 2009, felt-tips on Stonehenge cotton paper, 97 × 127cm. Drawn on an incredibly windy day on Boonerwrung land during my Naked Landscapes of Victoria travels funded by Arts Victoria. ‘Poss plays The Puss, a mono-browed misogynistic octopus who, when not engaging in choreographed dance routines, inhabits the waters of Cheviot Beach. Though cradling the lost remains of Liberal Prime Minister, Harold Holt, who went missing here in heavy surf in 1967, The Puss denies any involvement in his disappearance.’ #nakedlandscapes #nakedlandscape #haroldholt #liberal #primeminister #conspiracytheory #unsolvedmystery #octopus #dragking #humanoctopus #performanceartist #performanceart #cheviotbeach #portsea #morningtonpeninsula #australianbeach #australiancoastline #australianlandscape #landscape #australianbeach #australianhistory #australianpolitics #australianart #textaqueen #markers #drawing
