Aldona Kmieć (POL, AUS) / Ellen Wignell, Visual Arts Curator RACV

Aldona Kmieć invites us to explore the boundaries of our own imaginations and to embrace the power of creativity in her new series, Winterbloom. These fluid and bright photographs were made in the depths of winter during COVID-19 as an act of creative rebellion. She used a freedom of colour and movement to create this series of visually captivating self-portraits.

Kmieć is a Polish-born photographer, living in Australia (Ballarat / Melbourne) since 2009. Key projects include Paste Up Photography, Ballarat (2012), Under the Floorboards, Ballarat (2013) and State of Change, State Library of Victoria (touring 2020-22).


How to get there: Public Transport: Route 30 Bus, 30min from Ballarat. Bus stop Lakeside Drive/Midland Hwy, plus 5min walk.

Driving: From Ballarat: 15min drive, via Midland Hwy/A300 towards Creswick
From Melbourne: 1hr 30min drive, via National Hwy M8 towards Creswick, Parking onsite
