In The Process of Healing is a site-specific installation of images and sound, telling stories of survival. Responding to the stories of institutional abuse, suicide and shattered lives across the Ballarat community, artist Aldona Kmiec has created a moving and respectful collection that reflects the process of healing.
‘My vision is to document the invisible lives, drowned by society’s attempts to maintain normalcy through keeping their eyes shut, pretending that lives don’t exist, referring to them as numbers.
As a minority, I too share the mark of the unknown. In my artistic journey I show that coming from a place that is foreign to many, doesn’t mean one cannot achieve.’
Venue: Ballarat Welcome Centre 145 Victoria Street, Ballarat East
