Propositional work created as part of a 3 month residency at the Cité Internationale des Arts in Paris. The work concentrates on the decorative elements of palaces and galleries that often contain the objects of cultures that have been colonised. The obvious wealth of the galleries the objects of other worlds are displayed in has been extracted from the countries colonised, wealth taken not given. This residency was assisted by a grant from the Australia Council and the National Association for the Visual Arts.
