BREATH OF LIFE Starts Europe Tour In London

by Ellie Gilbert


Opening of European Tour of BREATH OF LIFE
Moments in Transit towards Aboriginal Sovereignty

Thursday 7th September - Saturday 7th October 2000

Private View - Thursday 7th September 2000, 6 - 8pm

presented by

the Rebecca Hossack Gallery

35 Windmill Street, London W1P 1HH

On the eve of the Olympics in Australia, Breath of Life begins its European tour elucidating the core of the Aboriginal Struggle for justice - as seen from the interface where the two vastly different worlds are colliding.

The exhibition includes Black and White photographic murals, colour photographic prints, linocuts and silk hangings of poetry. The works highlight poignant moments of the Land Rights and Sovereignty movement. It has already toured Australia and was exhibited in the Commonwealth Peoples Centre, Durban South Africa, during the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in 1999.

Artist and presenter Eleanor Gilbert (Williams) is available for interview this week. She has arrived after a month at the United Nations in Geneva, where she was part of a delegation advocating the enshrined right of Indigenous Peoples to self-determination. Submissions also included the fact that genocide is not a crime in Australia. While life expectancy in some Aboriginal communities, eg. Wilcannia on the Darling River in New South Wales, is as low as 32 years.
