Conservation staff have completed in the installation of Tony Albert’s Sorry 2008. The work was inspired by former prime minister Kevin Rudd’s formal apology to Indigenous Australians on 13 February 2008. On this day, Australia witnessed one of its most overtly optimistic displays of unity and emotion and, in the eyes of many, grew up. Capturing this outpouring of emotion in his work, Tony Albert introduces us to a forest of faces, each of which shares a history with those stolen from their people, land and culture. Each also represents a false identity; a manufactured black face made to fit a white society. By collecting and reintroducing these so-called ‘kitsch’ items into the world as ‘Aboriginal’ art, Albert affords each object a new and different life in the company of kindred souls: his practice is a liberation.
