Duk Duk I, Inkjet

After having seen several Duk Duk costumes at the recent APT; they keep popping up in conversation with Felix who it seems is also a little fascinated by them as i (and others) were as children in Papua New Guinea.DD's are a secret society (of men) from the Tolai people of Rabaul where my family lived.  They are frightening yet compelling like a good fairy tale & interestingly upon entering the gallery space at GOMA there was that feeling there which to a new Guinean is something a bit dark i guess..powerful even. So we continue to explore them in prints & someday it will all come together.
