Deb Mostert’s paint­ings, in­stal­la­tion, sculp­ture and film sum­mon par­al­lels be­tween the mi­gra­tion of birds and hu­mans. Our feath­ered friends and any­one who risks mov­ing their fam­ily, do so for safety, food and a peace­ful en­vi­ron­ment to raise their young. Mostert says ‘The im­ages I have made hold some prom­ise for fur­ther con­nec­tions be­tween my own mi­grant his­tory with the mi­gra­tion sto­ries of the waders that visit our shores.’ In this show she high­lights en­dan­gered wildlife, as well as con­nect­ing us with the plight of refugees.
