What Makes An Aussie?
I spent the first 30 years of my life completely disengaged from politics and notions of collective identity like race, gender or nationhood. I thought about it all the time, I just didn’t want anything to do with it. Then I lived overseas and I realised that collective identities gets forced upon you whether you like it or not, so I decided to own it, and use my art to reform Australian Identity as best I could. But I’m glad I was disengaged for a long time because now I understand why people stay that way. That’s important because those are the people we need to wake up.
