Performance : Tampa – Australia

“Tampa” is a sculpture and performance about the plight of some Middle Eastern refugees in Australia. The artwork references the incident where refugees fleeing wars and persecution in a small leaking boat were intercepted by the Australian Army following their rescue by the Norwegian ship “Tampa”. The refugees were redirected and detained in a refugee camp in Nauru, out of sight and away from Australian soil.
