Lismore Regional Gallery is looking for 20 daring volunteers to take up a rare opportunity to participate in a large-scale performance installation with renowned Indonesian/Australian artist Dadang Christanto on 20 July.

Survivor is a major art project, initially developed in 2008 as a live protest against an environmental disaster that occurred in East Java, which saw hot volcanic mud wipe out 11 villages and destroy many lives.

Survivor has since expanded beyond cultural borders, evolving into a universal, multi-faceted reflection upon human survival and what it means to endure tragic historical events, loss and death.

In this unique performance, over the course of two hours, volunteers will silently occupy the Lismore Regional Gallery, covered in mud from the neck down and holding photos of people who disappeared in the disaster.

According to the promotional material, after the performance, ‘visitors will be able to see documentation and the detritus of the performance in the form of an exhibition’.

Apart from being covered in mud, the only requirement is that volunteers must attend a briefing session with Dadang Christanto prior to the performance. The briefing session commences at 11.30am and a ‘standing lunch’ will be provided to volunteers prior to the performance starting.

The performance will take place from 2 to 4pm.
