The bundong peoples cultural awareness society

Travers Nash

Front Gallery
4 Sep 2015–26 Sep 2015
Opening 12.00am 1 Jan 1970

The Bundong Peoples Cultural Awareness Society, will showcase cultural artefacts from a fictional tribal society who’s material culture is flooded with the objects of globalised mass-production.

The Bundong People are a fictional tribal society who construct their cultural costume and totems from objects produced by our contemporary throw-away consumer culture. The exhibition will showcase traditional mystic rituals built around plastic buckets, tarpaulin and nylon rope, and traditional craft based on synthetic consumerism.

The Bundong peoples society is based on beliefs and practices which proclaim sound as the hidden foundation of all material existence.

Most of the works will be in the form of “sound totems”, sculpture and mixed media installations that explore the sonic properties and resonant interactions of everyday consumer products.

  • Travers Nash is a installation and sound artist from Queensland. He has travelled extensively, undertaking artistic residencies in India, Nepal, China, Finland, Iceland and Spain. His works major focus is on the phenomenological and psychological effects of sound. He is currently pursuing a Phd through Queensland College of Art.
