The Art Gallery of South Australia has acquired COFA graduate Alex Seton’s installation Someone died trying to have a life like mine.
The work was exhibited in the 2014 Adelaide Biennial of Australian Art Dark Heart. It references and acts as a memorial to the 28 life jackets that washed up on Cocos Island off the coast of Western Australia in May 2013.
