Reframe “Home” with Patterns of Displacement explores issues of displacement due to socio-political persecution. The exhibition aims to reveal the difficulties and suffering of individuals who have faced displacement and dislocation – manifesting a universal understanding for change, fragility and redemption.

Reframe “Home” with Patterns of Displacement address the catastrophe and the difficult reality of those individuals forced into displacement. It indicates and invokes the idea of the “Home” in fragments. That parts are absent and lost or left behind somewhere, and signifies both loss of home and the triumph of memory. The exhibition not only highlights the desperation and fragility of displaced individuals, but also conveys their courage and compassion. The project explores the human condition, which when under difficult situations requires and seeks hope, renewal and light.


This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body. This project is supported by the Victorian Government through Creative Victoria
