Cementa Art Festival, Kandos 2016
Cementa is a biannual arts festival staged in the NSW country town of Kandos, approx. four hours drive west from Sydney. Ingeniously orchestrated by a team of artisans and spearheaded by one Alex Wisser.
Upon being invited to participate on the second Cementa, I saw an opportunity to take the bull by the horns and force feed the locals a bit of local cultcha. That being the history of the local Aboriginal peoples the Dabee who’d largely been erased from the fabric of yet another ‘Australian’ town who’d passionately celebrate all things colonial through their course of his-story.
Having the town as a ‘blank canvas’ gave me the opportunity to explode creatively.
