Struggle Sessions

Along with fellow artist Gaganpreet Gil Kaur we have been exploring a new project ‘My Struggle Sessions’. Taking inspiration for the original sturggle sessions that happened in Tibet, they were a form of humiliation and torture used by the communist party of china in the Mao Zedong era (1945 - 1976) however the occasional illegal struggle sessions has happened since. The victim of a struggle session was forced to admit to various crimes before a crowd of people who would verbally and physically abuse the victim untill he or she confessed. 

 Using this as inspiration ‘My Struggle Sessions’ will explore our own personal inner stuggles and express them in public. Struggles we have due to society and how we feel within ourselves. It will become a series of performances around the city of Perth, stay tuned for more information to come.
