A Mosman Art Gallery Exhibition
Staged in the T5 Camouflage Fuel Tank, Headland Park, Georges Heights, Mosman
20 May - 12 June 2017
We're honoured that Ken's Attack series was included in a group exhibition presented by Mosman Art Gallery. Tokkotai: Contemporary Australian and Japanese Artists on war and the Battle of Sydney Harbour is a suite of exhibits and site-specific installations timed to correspond with the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Sydney Harbour.
On the night of 31 May 1942, three Japanese midget submarines entered the waters of Sydney Harbour embarking on a surprise attack which resulted in chaos and panic in the nation’s largest city. Twenty-one Australian Naval personnel and six Japanese submariners perished in the attack.
The exhibition was staged in the T5 Camouflage Fuel Tanks, Headland Park, Mosman, an industrial scale former naval oil tank. The venue itself plays an integral part in the immersive and emotive experience: a vast space hidden in bushland, where the works appear to float in the darkness, only a few hundred metres from where the attack on Sydney Harbour took place.
In addition to Ken the exhibition includes works by artists Michelle Belgiorno; Jennie Feyen; Sue Pedley; Miku Sato and Gary Warner.
