Greenerland
Installation - 2004
 
The Greenerland installation by Glen Smith played on aspects of ownership and citizenship. Creating a 'No Entry' republic as a part of the Geelong Arts Alliance's 'Artists Republics' project, Smith stamped visitors passports but would not allow visitors into the lush turf installation. Custom signage was created to representing asylum seeker issues at the time and faux tourist souvineers were created with the proceeds donated to the local refugee and asylum seeker support system. This was presented as a part of the 2004 Next Wave Festival.
