From the Artist:
This is a small series dedicated to my children. I am so grateful to them for keeping me young and full of life. When I reflect on my art and our strong culture I believe that we can still raise our children with traditional values in a contemporary world.
May 14th, 2013: Thursday, May 23 7pm Pedalling for Papua 2013 Kick off Event
Please join us at Alcheringa Gallery Thursday, May 23 at 7pm for the Pedalling for Papua 2013 kick off event!
A 12,000 kilometer international bicycling and performance tour, Pedalling for Papua aims to raise awareness of the 50 year old human rights and environmental abuse in the underreported region of West Papua.
As home to the bird of paradise, the second largest jungle remaining in the world, and our planet’s most bio-diverse marine zone, this beautiful region has been subject to what many observers have dubbed a slow-motion genocide. As many as 500,000 Indigenous West Papuans have died as a result of the military presence and lack of development in their homeland.
This story needs to be told, and it will be. Over 6 months campaigner Jeremy Bally will tour a multimedia performance on his bicycle through 6 countries. The show takes recorded conversations with West Papuan exiles, refugees and activists live on stage through an original animation. This is projected beside Jeremy as he narrates with original spoken word poetry and ukulele based hip-hop music.
Entry is by donation. See you there!
