Summary
"In 1871, the people of Erub made a decision that forever influenced the character of the Torres Strait. One hundred and forty-one years ago, a group of Melanesian Islander Christian teachers came by boat from Lifou, New Caledonia to spread the word of God. Erub leaders accepted Christianity, changing the Torres Strait forever; this event is known and celebrated as 'The Coming of the Light'. Many of the missionaries stayed, their bloodlines blending forever with Erubam. Sea Journeys - our home our people - is an early phase in an Erub Erwer Meta Art Centre project, researching and investigating family connections to the Pacific. In this exhibition, artists discuss common treads around their people and surroundings. Through their vibrant, large scale charcoal works and figurative wood-fired ceramics, they make reference to textiles, weaving, costume, body decoration and modern and traditional sea craft from past to present."
