Work Overview

Imago is based on the historical practice of Forced Adoption in Australia which reached its peak from 1950-1980, and the subsequent apology to the victims of Forced Adoption by the Gillard government on 21st March 2013. The text for the work is drawn from transcripts on the History of Adoption Project by Monash University, the government apology by Prime Minister Julia Gillard and the book 'Coming home to truth' by Judith Hendrikson.
