What is the function of an apology and who really benefits? What power structures are hidden behind our apologetic age?

Sorry for Real is a virtual apology on behalf of the Western world from French Guyanese/Danish artist, Tabita Rezaire.

Featuring a video and five large light boxes filled with text message exchanges laced with barbed wire witticisms, the works interrogate the violent deeds of colonial histories and their legacies. Holding space for what still needs to be heard, healed, and accounted for, this cyber exchange unapologetically addresses the politics of ‘reparations’ and the need to decolonise our technologies and reconciliation strategies. Sorry for Real is a confrontation of the apology-forgiveness narrative that will remain with audiences long after they leave the gallery.

Part of Oz Asia Festival 2019.
