As a senior Aboriginal woman, an educator and mentor as well as a writer and artist, under Grandmother’s Law my role is not just to keep knowledge and pass it on, it is also to awaken and stimulate, guide and nurture. And to shatter silences. The purpose of this exhibition is to challenge dominant socio-culture taboos by breaking silences shrouding what is not spoken, what is hidden out of fear or discomfort. I intend to break the silence around Colonisation by documenting my Cancer Journey, both taboos people shy away from talking about. And by doing so I aim to start conversations about both, because conversation reveals, demystifies and heals, as does the Land, our Mother.
