Artist Statement for ‘Myths and Murals’ residency with Arte Moris.
I have worked with many Arte Moris artists on a few occassions in Melbourne. First with the ‘Peace of Wall’ mural making in Hosier lane in 2010, secondly at the Signal37 workshops and thirdly with the ‘Doku Rai’ production (a few pages shown here) collecting stories and ideas from the group and helping them illustrate them while I did portraits and edited the collaborative works into a catalogue. Something I invision happening naturally on this project.
Discussing what is required at Arte Moris with some of the artists, the idea to invite people to tell the stories of the building came up. The once highly renowned museum of East Timor at Arte Moris was pillaged and most artifacts and historical monuments were destroyed or stolen in recent histories. By asking young, old, male and female locals all to tell us something they know about the space, we aim to create ‘A Documented History of Arte Moris’ through different stories translated to drawings by myself and any students of any age willing to participate. This would start as illustrations, cartoons and symbols and eventually the project would become a mural on and aound the building. I want to collect images of this process and turn into a book to share and start a new documented history for the centre.
