Digital Odyssey’s return to Cairns cancelled.

Only a few days from the opening of the exhibition Craig Walsh: Home at KickArts Contemporary Arts in Cairns, cyclone Yasi has become a terrible threat, causing the exhibition to be postponed until further notice.

Craig, Hiromi and Kimiyo were set to arrive into Cairns on 2 February to oversee the installation of HOME Cairns (2010) and to set up a workshop where members of the Cairns community would continue to add objects embedded with personal significance to the projection screen. The screen was originally put together in a joint effort between Hiromi Tango and local Cairns community members in a previous residency hosted by Cairns Regional Gallery in July 2010.

KickArts Contemporary Arts was to present the outcome of this residency and to extend and reinvigorate the HOME Cairns (2010) project in KickArts Gallery 2 from 7 February to 12 March. Due to the magnitude and gravity of cyclone Yasi, the exhibition will be on hold until the gallery resumes operations.

All our thoughts are with safety and wellbeing of everyone in the area.
