Edge of Elsewhere at Campbelltown Arts Centre, Gallery 4A Asia Australia Arts Centre and Sydney Festival, 9th – 31st January 2010.

Edge of Elsewhere is a major three-year project (2010, 2011 and 2012) that brings together some of the most exciting contemporary artists from across Australia, Asia and the Pacific to develop new artworks in partnership with Sydney communities.

Sydney is one of Australia’s most rapidly changing cities and is now more culturally diverse than ever before. The continually changing demographics provide an imperative to examine the questions that shape and inspire us as individuals, communities and cultures.

Edge of Elsewhere reflects and engages with the diverse cultural mix of suburban Sydney.

Artists participating in the project include:
Brook Andrew (Australia)
Arahmaiani (Indonesia)
Richard Bell (Australia)
YOUNG-HAE CHANG HEAVY INDUSTRIES (Korea)
Dacchi Dang (Australia)
Newell Harry (Australia)
Shigeyuki Kihara (Aotearoa New Zealand)
Jun Nguyen-Hatsushiba (Vietnam)
Lisa Reihana (Aotearoa New Zealand)
Khaled Sabsabi (Australia)
Wang Jianwei (China)

Gallery 4A Asia Australia Arts Centre has commissioned Talanoa; Walk the Talk V performance which opens the Edge of Elsewhere program held on the 14th January 2010.

I will be the Artist-In-Residence of the Gallery 4A Asia Australia Arts Centre from 30th November till the end of January 2010.

I am exhibiting all the moving image documentaries produced from the Talanoa; Walk the Talk performance series (including Talanoa V staged during my residency at Gallery 4A) in the group exhibition held at Gallery 4A.
