A trip to the gallery (QAGOMA)

It is time for the Asia Pacific Triennial Exhibition again.  I have been attending these since 1993 and they have grown in size and importance since then.  We get to see lots of works from Asian countries and the Pacific Islands that are not usually on the radar.

The most emotionally moving piece for me was an aboriginal piece from Australia.  Not only beautiful to look at but it was accompanied by wonderful sounds and the smell of eucaliptus.  It was a collection of tools arranged in a mobius shape and included tools used by males and females..

I want to go back and just sit with this one after all the crowds have gone.  It is a meditation as well as a work of art.

The galleries should have small attendance evening openings so that you can sit quietly with some of these pieces, shouldn't they!

Great shadows from these interesting tools.

This is one of those things you have to experience there was so much more than just the tools.
