Midway through 2014, the Animatism project received funding to bring out three of East Timorese's finest artists to make a mural and projection installation for the Gertrude Projection festival. Tony, Alfe and Etson are all renowned painters in East Timor, although projected art installations are yet to appear back home. So to capitalise on their artistic skills we set up a studio at the Fitzroy community art centre and had them freely pain the reverse of the glass. The idea was aimed at allow audiences to see their process, but also for that process to become a performance within itself. Luckily for us, the project won the 2014 Walker Abercrombie Judge's Award. Collaborating artists: Etson Caminha, Alfe Perreira and Tony Amaral, Chris Parkinson, Michael Fikaris and Michael Meneghetti.
Massive thanks to Chris Parkinson for introducing me to the project and his incredible work along side East Timorese artists Tony Amaral, Alfe Perreira, Etson Caminha, and the rest of the Aussie crew in Michael Fikaris, Amanda Haskard and Michael Meneghetti.
