The Other Side of Me is inspired by the life of a young First Nations man of Gurindji heritage, born in the 1960s in Australia’s Northern Territory, adopted by a white English family and raised in the English countryside. His story is inseparable from the Australian federal and state government policies (1910 until mid-1970s) to wrongfully remove children of Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander descent from their families and culture – the Stolen Generations. At the project’s core is a collection of approximately 30 letters and poems written by him to Fish between 1990–1994.
