Exhibition: 26 April – May 13, 2017
(email amended for glamour) April 10, 2017
My name is Brian Fuata. I’m a 38yr old, faggot, Samoan artist based in Sydney (originally from Brisbane) working in the improvisation of text and performance. I’m currently sick at the moment. Heaped in bed with the metallic taste of the flu in my mouth. I hope at least that you are feeling better.
…I’m now contacting you based on an improvised idea that came out from meeting Amy a few weeks back. Improvised is a key word here. I’m not entirely sure what will come of it, if anything.
Amy and I met in a cafe in the State Library where she showed me images of her work containing your beautiful juvenile writings.
I guess then this is maybe where we can start…out of Amy’s place of youthful, maternal, literary reference is a place of now…”
Post Script (written for the media release)If you’re not into it, I completely agree. I can easily work from nothing. Brian Fuata is a writer and performance maker trained in movement and improvisation.
TCB art inc. acknowledges the people of the Kulin Nations as the traditional custodians of the land, recognising their connection to land, waters and community, and the fact that Indigenous sovereignty has never been ceded. We pay our respects to their Elders; past, present and future.
