Alms & Psalms: The Unspoken Requiems of Henry Waller

Newell Harry

Beginning with the phrase ‘the natives are restless’, Harry refers to the cultural agitation bought about by colonial migration. In this exhibition he refers to the island castaway as a metaphor to express the complexity in his discussions of identity, nomadism, dislocation and the myths associated with sea trade and colonial adventure.

Art Exhibition previously on at Gertrude Contemporary in Australia.
From Friday 26 June 2009 to Saturday 18 July 2009
