Yay! Ballarat photography on show again! In the Process of Healing exhibition has been chosen for the Contemporary Art Awards as a finalist. In the Process of Healing is an immersive installation of photography, sound and space. Photographed in Ballarat’s old mining suburb of Black Hill, it tells a story of hope and survival of a local refugee family, exhibited for the first time at the former Ballarat Convent (former Sisters of Mercy 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’.
“Very theatrical, stimulating. When you go to the room, the ‘Chair of nails’ is very stark, but very evocative too. Most theatrically exciting thing for me was coming out of this room and having to walk through the photographs again, and see them in a different emotional state of mind. Beautifully theatrically presented.” Al Wunder
“Thought-provoking, sensitive and empathetic” , “Powerful exhibition”
