Exhibition: What Was Taken And What Was Given by Kelvin Skewes

Nauru-Website-003

Counihan Gallery, Brunswick,Victoria
until 24 August 2014

4×5 photographs of Nauru by Kelvin Skewes:

‘Nauru hosts three regional processing centres, part of Australia’s revamped ‘Pacific Solution’. They currently house about 1200 asylum seekers. The vast majority of Nauru’s tiny 21 square kilometre land area has been mined out, and Nauru now relies on aid and patronage from other countries. This exhibition contemplates twentieth century colonialism and twenty-first century paternalism.’
