Dean Bowen's Imagining Centaur
The Shrine of Remembrance Exhibition 'Dean Bowen's Imagining Centaur' explores the tragic story of the sinking of the Australian Hospital Ship Centaur on 14 May 1943.
The tragic story of Australian Hospital Ship Centaur, sunk on 14 May 1943, inspired a series of charcoal drawings by celebrated artist Dean Bowen.
The beautiful, thought-provoking work underscores the horror of the violation while commemorating the 268 innocent souls lost, and the 64 brave individuals who survived.
The exhibition features a specially commissioned animation of Dean Bowen’s Centaur series of charcoal drawings by Japanese audio-visual artist, Ayumi Sasaki.
The animation is a wonderful synergy of several creative minds, from two nations, once enemies now friends, which bring to life Dean’s beautiful, unsettling but ultimately hopeful vision.
