"Yesterday" I went to the ABC Centre in Ultimo (as it happens, it’s right behind my cousin’s swanky new apartments above Woolworths Haymarket) and I looked at the "mental as" art exhibition (for some sort of mental health awareness week). This particular piece, "Great Scott!" (2014) is by Indigenous Australian artist Richard Bell. Now, I didn’t like it at first, & I was rather confused as to how it related to PTSD in refugees, as stated in the program/notes, and I thought it confrontational and abrupt, you know, neither the artist nor I being refugees (that I know of). But thinking on it, of course we’re all thankful that we’re not refugees, underneath that (white) guilt &/or out-and-out racism. #abcaustralia #mentalhealth #mentalas #richardbell #boatpeople #asylumseekers #refugees (at 702 ABC Sydney)
