Atong Atem: Portals

February 7 - February 29

Atong Atem, Ego no.1, 2019. Digital Print, 90 x 60 cm, Edition of 10 + 2AP. Courtesy: the artist and MARS Gallery, Melbourne.

MARS Gallery presents Portals, an exciting exhibition of work by Atong Atem.

This new body of work explores the inherent intimacy of portraiture and photography as well as the role photographers take as story tellers. Atem interrogates photography as a framework for looking at the world and positioning people in it and references the works of photographers Malick Sidibe, Philip Kwame Apagya and Seydou Keita to create a visual representation of a relationship to culture.

She works primarily with photography and video to explore migrant narratives and postcolonial practices in the African diaspora, the relationship between public and private spaces and the exploration of home and identity through portraiture.

Exhibition opens: 6–8pm Friday 7 February 2020
