Bimblebox 153 Birds will have its first 2019 exhibition in March at the Gladstone Regional Art Gallery and Museum in Queensland. The installation features artists prints, poetry, prose and musicians’ birdcalls by over 450 people around the world, inspired by the birdlife of the threatened Bimblebox Nature Refuge. So far 153 bird species have been found in this sanctuary in central Queensland’s Galilee Basin.
My poem ‘White-Bellied (Little) Cuckoo Shrike, Coracina Papuensis’ – a response to the male birds, who have a striking black eye stripe like dark sunglasses, white belly and grey back and wings – is in the mix.
