Location: 
George Lance Gallery

through water as smoke continues Naarm (Melbourne) based artist, Lara Chamas’ ongoing investigation into objects of ritual. A Lebanese-Australian, Chamas’ practice interweaves film and sculpture to explore notions of transnational identity, family and culture. Echoing the legacy of Levantine glassmaking, alongside displaying humorous and, often, vulnerable performances of prayer and caretaking, the exhibition is a tender story of grappling identity politics.

Saturday 24 April 11 - 12pm
