Between Iran, Peter Hore and Australia

This installation is a result of complications that arise when cultures form ideas about one another from a distance. Peter Hore's intervention during the Iran/Australia World Cup soccer qualifier in 1997 provides the point around which these interpretations revolve.

Through documentation, correspondence and mythology within Iran and Australia I have attempted to locate the figure of Peter Hore. In doing so he has become a meniscus between countries and stories that may never correlate. It is this non-location that becomes the work creating spaces to place ourselves, in relation to others.
