A new exhibition explores the emotionally fraught subject of what’s known about mothers who killed their children in colonial Western Australia.
The Spaces Between Us is curated by ECU Post Doctoral Research Fellow Dr Amanda Gardiner and draws on her PhD research, which investigates women who committed infanticide.
Dr Gardiner has uncovered more than 55 cases between 1829 and 1901 and the reasons it happened.
She joined Artbeat to tell us more about the exhibition and the issue it explores.
