LIMBOLAND

  • COMMUNE 901 Bourke Street Waterloo, NSW, 2017 Australia (map)

COMMUNE presents LIMBOLAND, an exhibition by Sydney artist Lachie Hinton and photojournalist Mridula Amin exposing the stories of refugees and asylum seekers who were detained indefinitely on Nauru.

Showing for one night only, the unique exhibition seeks bring community awareness to the lives of those who were held indefinitely in offshore detention, shedding light on the human impact of living in limbo.

The exhibition features unseen photographs, paintings, sketches and documentary work that details their journey through Nauru. It will also entail an immersive soundscape by Andrew Kuo (Yon Yonson) created with sounds captured throughout Nauru, where Hinton and Amin worked covertly to uncover the experiences of those who had been detained by the Australian government for over six years.

Elaine Pearson, Australia Director of Human Rights Watch will be giving an opening address at 6:30pm followed by a documentary screening of LIMBOLAND (2018).
