ALL THE LATEST FROM CHARTS
Foreign Land exhibition coming to Art Space
EMERGING artist and local professional photographer Sabrina Lauriston will bring Foreign Land to Childers Arts Space.
The exhibition highlights her personal passion for traditional photography techniques and will feature more than 30 emotional journeys drawn from immigrants living in the Bundaberg region accompanied by a portrait of each person.
Immigrants who have made Australia home between 1949 and 2013 will be featured in this moving exhibition which also explores each individual’s journey and their reasons for moving to Australia - be it love, work, war, family or even starvation.
The exhibition also explores their Australian experience and their reaction to Australia on their arrival.
She developed Foreign Land in response to her move to Australia as an immigrant, and as a way to discover more about the local community, specifically the stories and memories of migrants to the region.
The exhibition opens on Tuesday and runs until July 19. The official opening function to celebrate both the exhibition and her book “Foreign Lands” will be held at the gallery on Saturday May 16 at 2pm.
Entry is free.
