For 500 years we have hidden our true faces in order to resist, and kept silent the better to remember.
The wind will carry our words
As our ancestors say: The wind will disappear. It moves on, but always returns.
"TEOL - ESSENCE OF G"
Fifth Australian Sculpture Triennial
In the installation "Guatamala" I was trying to express the horror I felt after travelling there.
Here you have a country that takes great pride in its historical past, for example Tikal is an amazing place to visit, but its present and future are a debilitating contrast.
Many children live alone on the streets, where they are taken by police and hung from trees and beaten.
There is also a trade going on where they are told they may travel to America and get an education, but the reality is their organs are taken from them for organ transplants and they die.
This trade is allegedly organised by doctors and lawyers in the U.S. and Guatemala
time since gone
Peace I have never known
Awesome light of star swept night
Deep velvet glow
Grey fox advance
The half moon glow
Soft shimmer shows
This ancient time
Life's rhythm flows
The jungle close
protects a time
