Professor Andrew Korda and his wife, Susan Pearson, have collected art for many decades. They have a particular interest in sculptural works for their cultural connection, physical form and tactile aesthetic. During their extensive travels through the Indonesian Islands from the 1980’s onwards with their colleague and friend, Dr Peter Elliott, they developed an affinity for tribal and South East Asian art which they acquired to add to their existing collection of Aboriginal sculptural works. Their collection comprises of a variety of sculptural forms from delicate Indonesian ancestral figures to monumental Tiwi Island Pukamani poles, and includes a wide range of indigenous jewellery and beautifully crafted implements. This stunning collection represents most of the diverse art forms produced by the rich traditional cultures of the Asia-Pacific region.
