The exhibition challenges dominant socio-cultural taboos, breaks silences shrouding the unspoken. It shatters the silence around Colonisation by documenting my cancer journey. We need to stimulate conversations about both because conversation reveals, demystifies, and heals. Cancer is hidden, silent, can spread and occupy it’s host undetected unless it is actively looked for and identified. The most destructive and debilitating form of colonisation is ‘mental colonisation’, which invades, infects, multiplies, and spreads, occupies, and decimates beliefs, understandings, identity, ideas, behaviours, hopes and dreams. Like cancer, it infiltrates silently, occupies minds and goes undetected until deliberately sought out, identified, and eliminated. Colonisation is a tumour in the consciousness of this nation that requires a ‘radical curative intervention’ if we are to survive and thrive. (inclusive of LED lights & custom plinth)
