TORN AWAY Collage Project 2016

Six artists explore notions of home, belonging, safety and human rights enjoyment through the medium of collage. Drawing on distinct intellectual and aesthetic traditions, the artists synthesise and reposition knowledge and lived experience into the newer contexts where they live and work in Kulin Nation territory. Over three months resident artists were invited to work with established Melbourne based collage artist Staphanie Hicks.

The exhibition outcome of this project, Torn Away, formed part of the 2016 Human Rights Arts and Film Festival and took place on the 13th May 2016.
