Conversation: Traveller’s Tales

an Object that Sparks a Story

Objects have history, materiality, cultural and personal significance. Through these things we can relive memories and optimistically look forward to a time when travel can again be undertaken.

At this virtual “show and tell” event, we will be taking the opportunity to recount a brief story about an object in our possession, to explain its origins and speak to its special place in our lives and hearts. You may like to hold your object to show it or prefer to screen share it via an image. Time for each “show and tell” is 3 minutes.

Of course those who wish only to observe are also welcome.

Our convenor, Mandy Ridley, is a visual artist with a long history of engagement with India through residencies, research and exhibitions that commenced with the 2002 Khoj International Artist Workshop. She has visited India regularly and maintained warm relationships with a wide circle of Indian artists and friends. In 2012 she was included in an associated event for the first Kochi-Muzuris Biennale (KMB) in an exhibition of Australian and Indian artists. For more information on her work, including an extensive public art practice, please see https://www.mandyridley.com

Join us to learn the story of Mandy’s intriguing images shown here.
