Reflection Exhibition: 'Liminal' Portraits
No Vacancy Gallery, 5—17 December
Part of the Mapping Melbourne Festival, exhibiting alongside Pimpisa Tinpalit and Yumemi Hiraki.
Asian-Australian representation is largely absent from the Australian cultural landscape; stories that define us are often about us, not by us. 'Liminal' is an attempt to create space where we may shape our own narratives. Each photograph is a collaboration with the subject, with an aim to present them as they are: in surroundings of their choosing, in garments of their own. What does it mean to be Asian-Australian? What does it mean to take up space? These photographs engage with the multiplicity, strength and beauty of Asian-Australian identity.
