Brought to you by Tortuga Studios – one of Sydney’s longest-standing artist-run spaces – HUE + CRY is a creative exploration of liminal space and a history that holds a powerful sense of place. Listen, breathe, seek out the corners where the air shifts and sighs, and discover the torn edges of this realm.

The Coroner’s Court exists in a state of liminality, midway between the worlds of the living and the dead, between terra firma and the sea that laps at its fringes, between cultural lore and the law of the land.

It is a space that no-one can contest, belonging solely to the coroner and the dead. Responding to the hue and cry used to call forth the coroner, it is they alone who can deal with the dead, in a relationship that is strangely loving.

It is a cradle for the memories of the dead and the people who tended to them. It is wreathed in ghosts, echoing with story, and it exists today to honour them.

HUE + CRY features the artwork of some of Sydney’s leading visual artists. Visit to find out more.

Tortuga Studios is one of Sydney’s largest and longest-running artist-run spaces, it is as eclectic as it is acclaimed.
