I’m very pleased to announce that my photographic and sculptural work from In the Process of Healing exhibition has been chosen for the final of Contemporary Art Awards in Australia. In the Process of Healing is an immersive installation of photography, sound and space. It tells a story of hope and survival of a local refugee family, exhibited for the first time at the former Ballarat Convent now Ballarat Welcome Centre as part of Ballarat International Foto Biennale 2017 festival.
What it means to me? A huge opportunity to shed light on social injustice happening around us. To tell, and not to be silent. To change someone’s life for the better.
Experiencing with immersive photography and installation art, my practice aims to prompt questions about our cultural and social prejudices and the perceived ‘otherness of the other’.
