In February 2012 there was an exhibition by 10 Western Australia Artists at Gallery Horikawa, Kobe, Japan sponsored by Mr. Horikawa the artists were Connie Petrillo, David Bromfield, Diokno Pasilan, Janis Nedela, Louis Moncrieff, Martine Heine, Monique Tippet, Patriza Tonello, Pippa Tandy and Peter Davidson at this exhibition Sadaharu Horio came and viewed the exhibition and after a good conversation with Martin plus others, he subsequently organised a performance space for himself and Martin which was titled: Preparation for a Movement and as I understand Horio made the connection between north (Japan) and South (Western Australia) at that performance. The Horio/ Martin Heine performance can be seen here

From that statement North and South by Horio the collaboration continues between Japan and Western Australia into this next exhibition titled; Peace and Harmony generously sponsored by  at Gallery Opera Labo 102.

The title of the show Peace and Harmony promotes tolerance between different societal memories and aesthetics through these aforementioned artists in a world that appears to be in need of that wonderful human quality. Further information on the exhibition will be posted as it comes to hand thank you.
