The artists in Never-Never Land take pre-existing cultural, commodity, musical and art-historical forms – such as maps, instruments, and icons from the modernist art canon – and repurpose them in their work. Engaging alternately in modes of critique, historicism and adaptation, some of these appropriations are literal, others are formal, whilst some are speculative and fantastical.
