Routes of Life, Ghosts of History

Trebuchet Magazine

Post-colonialism is alive and well. As a discourse it has parallel pathways to power and capital through institutions and histories. It is a lens to scrutinise how facts are used to build myths and if we cannot necessarily know a universal truth as it relates to cultural history (if such a thing exists), we can understand how the emergence of silenced voices, hidden testimonials, and forgotten records can work towards reconciliation and balance.

With this exhibition the interpretive voices of diverse artists are joined together to give a wide ranging view of colonial legacies through a creative frame. As such visitors are encouraged to engage with the works as testimonies, not necessarily of what Colonialism was, but what it means now.
