APACHETA: pop-up art exhibition by Melbourne artist, Ross Miller, partnering with World Vision Australia

Travelling to Peru in 2012 was such an epic adventure and bucket list item. I trekked to Machu Picchu and raised funds for Black Dog Institute. I’ve always loved the latino culture and quickly embraced the Peruvian cultures and their vast history of stories and traditions. I loved learning about the Quechuan people and seeing their marks left across the land. The thing that stood out the most was the apacheta. A series of stones in a sculpture like structure.  I left one of these on a high pass, 4400m along the Lares Valley route in memory of my grandmother and the adventure we took on.

It’s so wonderful to see another organisation that I care so much about showcasing the apachetas and supporting the people of Peru. World Vision Australia (WVA) is partnering with Melbourne artist, Ross Miller, on a pop-up art exhibition of Peruvian inspired sculptures at Wick Studios, Brunswick. Opening speeches will commence at 7pm. Media is invited to attend at anytime.

APACHETA is an exhibition of sculptures made from wood, stone, bronze and ciment fondu, and is influenced by Miller’s many travels throughout Latin America. The apachetas are derived from the Inca tradition of stacking stones as a means of marking sacred sites, identifying trails and paying homage to the Andean earth goddess, Pachamama. ‘Apacheta’ is a Quechuan word for a pile of stones.

All sculptures in the exhibition are for sale, with Miller donating net profits to WVA’s Peruvian cook stove project. For every $100 AUD raised, WVA will provide one cook stove, which will directly benefit some of the poorest families in Peru.

The Art of The Brick! Loved the DC Comics Lego Exhibition at the Sydney Powerhouse Museum

Lego is incredible. You can build whatever you want, whenever you want. It’s a childs paradise of creativity. Often one for adults too. As a kid I remember attending a lego exhibition with some of the sculptures and builds even moving, I’ve never forgotten it. When I saw that The Art of the Brick: DC Comics Lego Exhibition was coming to Sydney, I had to go! It did not disappoint!
