The DAR Residency September CONVERSATION OVERSEAS. Conversation Overseas is about the maternal loss during the Child Migration Programme (1853 -1967). The work deals with the sadness of maternal loss, a living loss, recognising obliteration in loss, having no body to bury as the children were overseas. The children had been lied to and been told their mothers had died, they had no choice but to go overseas. Both visual and media artists, Jules Findley based in UK, with Linda Duvall, based in Canada, in Saskatoon and Toronto. During the residency, Jules Findley will travel to Singapore, a port for supplies to ships travelling to Australia and New Zealand. Postings will be made from different locations in Canada, England and Singapore.
