Gaffa Gallery, The alien in our midst

Belinda Allen, Christopher Lawrie

"The alien in our midst …" is an exhibition of photographic montages and assemblages exploring notions of displacement, land and belonging. Images of outback and rural Australia are juxtaposed with portraits of recently arrived immigrant youth, ghosts of Afghan pioneers, archival book pages and texts by early explorers and settlers in Australia. Belinda Allen is a digital photomedia artist concerned with human relationship to land and environment. Christopher Lawrie’s mixed media work explores the experiences of immigrants, from early sea voyages to recent refugee arrivals, including his own family who immigrated in 1839.

Dates of Exhibition: 
17 May - 28 May
