I’m honoured to be part of the exhibition Bittersweet, curated by Shivanjani Lal, alongside Manisha Anjali, Mohini Chandra, Quishile Charan, Yasbelle Kerkow, Shivanjani Lal, C.A Moses, Dulcie Stewart, Luisa Tora & Sangeeta Singh and Emele Ugavule.
Bittersweet is a survey of emerging and mid-career Fijian contemporary artists. It is a talanoa a way in which conversations or in this case artworks can be shared which lead to a collective understanding. These conversations are both bitter, and sweet. iTaukei (Indigenous Fijian) and Indo-Fijian artists, have been invited to navigate histories, offerings, ideas of craft and acts of return – speaking to new and old ideas of Fiji and our lives in Diaspora.
My work The Colonial Wholesale highlights Australia’s imperialist agenda in the Pacific region.
Bittersweet is on until 27 September at Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre in Western Sydney, with an extended digital program from 28 September – 1 November 2020.
