the History of Salt . . . 5

For Christopher Lawrie the corrosive nature of salt provides an aesthetic and cultural metaphor for the attrition of memory and a colonial past. His installations of works on paper utilise historical artifacts to form contexts for contemporary readings of the past.. Hazelhurst Catalogue

GENESIS 2003

There remained on departing ships, until the last boat left them, representatives of various Christian persuasions. F. W. Leighton, leaving Liverpool on the clipper ship Bloomer in 1853, wrote of the presence of 'a pale man with thin visage dressed in a shabby black surtout buttoned to the chin'.

He is standing by some parcels of books which we soon hear are tracts destined for the use of the passengers ... We learn that the habit of [his] useful Society is to put a number of tracts in all vessels leaving the port of Liverpool thus they give food for the mind and instruction for eternity.'

NAJIB RAFIGI 2005

I came to Australia to escape from the Taliban in 2001. The small boat nearly sank, we all thought we would drown many times.

I was tortured and imprisoned for 11 months, because I believed in a modern Afghanistan and equality for woman and education for all children
